I am happy to announce a band I have liked for a long time Old Canes will be coming to town on November 24th and playing at Modified Arts.
From Lawrence Kansas Old Canes is a musical collective currently with Chris Crisci (of Appleseed Cast), Kelly Hangauer (of 4th Of July), Lucas Oswald (of Minus Story), Taylor Holenbeck, Joey Henry (of Calamity Cubes), Jordan Geiger (of Minus Story), and John Anderson (and Boy’s Life / White Whale). The start of the band was when Crisci would have to play acoustic in-stores on tour with his band Appleseed Cast and would throw in his own solo material to have enough songs since Appleseed Cast did not have many acoustic songs fit for the more intimate settings. These acoustic shows eventually became Old Canes.
The 2nd Annual Phoenix Independents Bowl is a celebration of Phoenix’s independent culture. On Saturday November 21st, 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. They will come together to celebrate the great strives and growth the independent community in Phoenix has seen in resent years. The Phoenix Independents Bowl will be held at The Sunset Bowl on 12th St and Dunlap, one of the last remaining independently owned bowling centers in Arizona.
A main goal of The Phoenix Independents Bowl is to highlight the interconnected nature of local artistic communities and local economies and to strengthen relationships between those who care about both. It is in the spirit of this goal that the proceeds of The Phoenix Independents Bowl will benefit Local First Arizona and their work to strengthen communities and local economies through supporting, maintaining, and celebrating locally owned business through out the state of Arizona.
