Event Description

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 with our friends at WXPN to bring tunes from the Tiny Desk Contest to Philadelphia and cities around the U.S. Join WXPN Program Director Bruce Warren, hosts John Vettese, Helen Leicht and NPR Music’s Bob Boilen for a private, invitation-only celebration of the Philly musical community, including live performances by local Tiny Desk Contest entrants Joy Ike, Tutlie and The Bul Bey.
