Maybe we are way late on posting this, but here it is. Way back in May NPR Illinois put on a special “Public Radio Week” at different locations downtown. Part of this included a “Tiny Desk Concert Series” show at Anvil & Forge on Washington Street. Bands that play included Kate The Band (pictured above), Looming, Jeff Williams, and Dexter Anodyne. We’ve got the video from Looming’s set on the player embedded below.

To see videos of all four sets, head on over to the NPR Illinois site right here.
