The Return of the Phoenix Independents Bowl

May 13, 2014


I am very pleased to announce that The Phoenix Independents Bowl is returning on Sunday June 22, 2014. Dozens of teams comprised of Phoenix’s best independent bands, independent businesses, and independent minded citizens will compete in a bowling tournament for the ages at Let It Roll Bowl, one of the few independently owned bowling alleys in Arizona.

I first started The Phoenix Independents Bowl in 2008. The first three tournaments brought together the Valleys music scene to celebrate independent culture. After a few years hiatus the event is returning for a fourth installment with the same mission of bringing together the local music community. I never thought that we would push back the 4th Indie Bowl more than a few months, but 3 years later I am pleased that it is finally coming back.

The tournament will feature teams of four comprised of members of local bands, music venues, local businesses and local fans competing for fame and glory. Or at least some sweet trophies. Each team will bowl no less than two games before advancing to a play-off bracket to find a winner.

The proceeds of the event will all go to 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 Phoenix Independents Bowl is brought to you by Psyko Steve Presents and Local First Arizona.
