Fresh-minded and well-curated, NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts
are an institution in the modern music landscape, and its Tiny Desk Contest
has become an exciting annual derby for aspiring music talent across the country.
Just last year, Orlando garage-soul stars the Sh-Booms
made enough of an impression with their submission to get featured
on NPR's Weekend Edition

This year, in a righteous attempt to help boost Central Florida's representation in the national contest, local NPR Member Station 90.7 WMFE
is offering its studios – desks included – to area artists to shoot their Tiny Desk video. Space is limited so hit up [email protected]
to hook it up.
