Strange Acoustics: Tiny Desk Concert with Chance the Rapper

NPR has been recording Tiny Desk Concerts at All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen’s desk since 2008. The idea was conceived by Boilen and NPR music editor Stephen Thompson after attempting to watch singer Laura Gibson at a bar and leaving because they couldn’t hear her over the din of the gathered crowd. The unusual setting is up close and intimate, and the artists featured belong to a wide ranging mix of genres from indie rock, to hip hop and pop music.

One of my favorite performances is by Chance the Rapper, who wrote a poem just for his Tiny Desk appearance and laughs off an interruption from the office PA system mid performance.
