Tiny Desk Contest On The Road Fueled By Lagunitas Brewing Company
May 12, 2016
7 PM - 10 PM
More than 6,000 unsigned bands and artists entered NPR Music’s 2016 Tiny Desk Contest, our search to find a great undiscovered talent to perform at the most famous desk in music. Our judges picked one winner — violinist Gaelynn Lea — but in the process, we found countless reasons to celebrate the creativity and musicianship embedded in every community across the country.
Now, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company, the sponsor of the Tiny Desk Contest since its launch in 2014, are teaming up to bring tunes from the Tiny Desk Contest to Los Angeles and cities around the U.S. Join NPR Music staff for this private, invitation-only celebration of the L.A. musical community, including live performances by local Tiny Desk Contest entrants Earth to Jupiter, Valley Queen, City City and KULA.
This event is private and invitation-only. Request your invitation here. If you have received a registration summary, that will serve as your invitation — make sure you bring it along!
