Rock on!

I love the Tiny Desk concerts. Favorites are Tedeschi Trucks and Booker T. Many other good ones, also, but I replay those two a lot.

I am always annoyed by people who complain about the lack of great and innovative contemporary music - Those who lament "it was much better before blablabla" - They definitely don't listen to the Tiny Desk. You'll find of a lot of exciting musicians and bands if you know where to find them and if you keep an open mind.

Excellent show. I don't listen to it enough but I did discover one of my favorite new bands on it, The Family Crest. Amazing musicians:

Love the Tiny Desk.

Another way I find new music is through Amoeba's "What's In My Bag?" series on YouTube.

I also have access to a great library, and while watching those Amoeba videos, I'll search the library's catalog online, fill up my request list with CDs, and go check them out the next day.
