Tiny Desk 2016: Thanks for supporting Mt. Thelonious and local music!
NPR's 2016 Tiny Desk Contest gives bands the chance to compete to play a concert at NPR’s headquarters, appear on the game show Ask Me Another, and tour across the country.
To bring that competition home, St. Louis Public Radio held our own Tiny Desk Contest. We collected submissions to the national contest and had you, our readers and listeners, vote on your favorite act. Voting is now closed, but you can still see all of the entries.
Mark Wallace, Alyssa Avery and Ian Lubar of Mt. Thelonious were great guests and played to a packed lobby, around our own version of a tiny desk, for close to an hour. Watch their performance below. and visit their website for more music and show dates.
We also posted short profiles and band Q & A's for your top five acts.
Thanks to all of the local bands who submitted to the contest. And lots of gratitude to YOU for stopping in to support local music!
