If you're already a fan of NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, you know the series of videos is a great place to discover up-and-coming talent in the music world among videos of stripped down performances from more established musicians.

That's probably why so many local artists have submitted YouTube videos to win their spot to record their own video at NPR's Washington D.C. offices as part of the Tiny Desk Contest. Although the submission time for the contest has ended, singer-songwriter Jacob Acosta has curated a list of Tucson's entries.


Competing Old Pueblo submissions include Run Boy Run performing "Far From My Home / Lion and the Fawn," Mark Anthony Febbo performing "Bankrupt Man," and Carlos Arzate & The Kind Souls performing "On & On & On."

To watch the local videos that were made for the NPR contest, which could really mean some big national attention for these indie artists if they win, visit the Facebook event page created by Acosta. The winner of the NPR Tiny Desk Contest will be announced on the event's website on Thursday, Feb. 12. And, from the looks of it, Tucson has a pretty good chance of getting picked.
