NPR Music is throwing a Tiny Desk contest to help fans discover unknown artists. The Tiny Desk Concerts series at NPR has long been a place to see well-known musicians, as well as a launching pad for many others. Now, we're looking for true unknowns. We're asking bands and musicians all over the country to film themselves performing one song behind a desk of their choice.
The winner will play NPR's famous Tiny Desk in Washington, D.C., and travel to Austin, Texas, in March 2015 to appear in Lagunitas' CouchTrippin' showcase.

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
