The Tiny Desk Contest Comes to Portland


The NPR Music Tiny Desk Contest is coming to Portland Wednesday May 10th, 7pm, at the Lagunitas Community Room (at 237 NE Broadway). This year’s contest winners, New Orleans group Tank and the Bangas, will perform, along with Portland acts Haley Heynderickx, Lola Buzzkill, and Family Mansion.

The event May 10th is 21+ over only. There are a limited number of tickets available here.

The Tiny Desk Contest invites unsigned artists around the country to submit a video of their song performance behind a desk of any kind, and the winning entry is chosen by a panel of judges from thousands of entries.  (See opbmusic’s favorite entries from more than 400 submissions in the Pacific Northwest, and an interactive map of those entries.) NPR Music announced the 2017 winning entry from Tank and the Bangas in February.
