The Phoenix Independents Bowl is an all local bowling tournament comprised of members of Phoenix’s best bands, businesses, and independent minded citizens. The 7th Phoenix Independents Bowl will be held on Sunday, July 7th at Let It Roll Bowl, one of the only independently owned bowling alleys in Phoenix.
The Indie Bowl launched in 2008, started by concert promoter Psyko Steve Presents. The event began as a fun get together for local musicians, and has taken place sporadically over the years. The last Indie Bowl was held in 2018, and was billed as “Not-Really-Annual.” The 7th (now being more realistically billed as “Basically Annual”) 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 bringing together musicians from all corners of the Valley’s music scene into a laid-back and fun setting. “I have always believed that there is more in common with most musicians than they realized. It is to easy for bands to get caught up in their own world and miss what is happening around them. This event is about finding the common spirit,” says Chilton of the event.
The proceeds of the event will 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.
