Phoenix Independents Bowl – June 26 at Let It Roll Bowl

May 20, 2022

Psyko Steve Presents proudly presents the 8th Not-Really-Annual Phoenix Independents Bowl, an all-local bowling tournament with teams comprised of Phoenix’s best bands, businesses, and independent-minded citizens. The 8th Phoenix Independents Bowl will be held on Sunday, June 26th at Let It Roll Bowl, one of Arizona’s only independently owned bowling alleys. 

The event proceeds will once again benefit Local First Arizona and help with their goal to make Arizona a better place by supporting locally owned businesses and building vibrant communities that residents are proud to call home.

The Indie Bowl was launched in 2008, started by concert promoter Stephen Chilton of Psyko Steve Presents. The event began as a fun get-together for local musicians and has taken place sporadically over the years. The Phoenix Independents Bowl will continue to foster the spirit of community that started in that first event over a decade ago.

The main goal of the Indie Bowl is to bring together musicians and independent businesses from all corners of the Valley in a laid-back and fun setting. “After all we have gone through the last few years, bringing people together in person is more important than ever before,” says Chilton. “It will be great to see this community in one place again.”

The tournament will feature teams of four competing for fame and glory… or at least some sweet trophies or prizes… or just for local bragging rights. Each team will bowl two games before leaders advance to a playoff format bracket to determine an ultimate champion. Organizations and bands participating in this year’s tournament include Acme Prints, Linger Longer Lounge, 8123, The Deadbeat Cousins, Last Exit Live, American Standards, Local First Arizona, Frances Boutique, The Nile, Der Wurst Hot Dogs, The Rebel Lounge and more.
