In conjunction with NPR Music our VIP for the evening will be the 2018 Tiny Desk Contest winner, Naia Izumi!
Join Ask Me Another, NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company for a celebration of the 2018 Tiny Desk Contest winner: Naia Izumi! Naia is a musician from Georgia who regularly busks on the streets of Los Angeles, where he now lives. He impressed the judges with his intricate, complex guitar playing and his sweet, emotive voice. The video he submitted for "Soft Spoken," recorded in the home studio he has built in his garage, showcases the incredible skillfulness and gentle spirit he brings to his music. Contest judge and All Songs Considered co-host Bob Boilen described Naia’s talent as “bubbling and ready to blossom,” and we’re so excited to take him on the road with us!
For an hour, listeners can play along as Eisenberg puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, audience members and special mystery guests, who then takes a turn in the contestant's chair facing trivia games written especially for him or her. What you'll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend's house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes.
Ask Me Another is recorded live at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY.
