You got to admit, the NPR Tiny Desk Concert series is creative. Musicians performing at a small desk, intimate and short. And often unplugged–I mean, where else can you hear auto tune king T Pain without any vocal effects?
They’re running a contest right now inviting unsigned musicians of all genres to submit a track by January 19, 2015 to be considered for a Tiny Desk concert (which includes an all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C.).
You have to record yourself/your group performing at a desk of your choice and then upload it to YouTube. More details are on their website. Good luck!
