Tiny Desk STL

St. Louis' music scene is well represented again this year in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest.

NPR Music will pick its winner, who will get to play a concert at NPR's studios in Washington D.C., appear on Ask Me Another and tour the country.

Here in St. Louis, one of our favorites will play a local show in March. Who? We don't know yet! We're taking a look at who you told us were your favorites over the past few weeks, and we'll be in touch.

*#TinyDeskSTL is picking a local favorite, not the winner, for NPR Music's Tiny Desk Contest 2017. Bands and singers selected for profiles and last year's concert are ineligible to be featured this year. Gotta spread the love!

Speaking of, St. Louis' 2016 favorite was Mt. Thelonius. Here's their entry to this year's NPR Tiny Desk Contest:

Thanks for telling us who your faves are!

We're taking a look at the results to see you your faves are, and we'll be in touch soon.

Check back later for more details on the local concert, or stay in touch on Facebook and Twitter.
