Quick reminder: Indie Bowl, the annual charity bowling event featuring Phoenix scenesters rolling for the benefit of Local First Arizona, is this Sunday.

There's a veritable who's who among the teams at the Psyko Steve sponsored event: The Rogue Bar, Hard Rock Cafe, Lost Leaf, Snake! Snake! Snakes!, Gospel Claws, Scorpion vs. Tarantula, Local First AZ, PBR, Good Fellas Merch, Hello Merch, etc, etc, etc... Hooves will not be there, sadly.

There's also an intriguing lineup of DJs.

J.P. Woodbury (DJ Babynose) who freelances for us and Tim Neilson (a.k.a. DJ Johnny Volume) are in the mix but the truly intriguing face-off is between Phoenix's two best hipster DJs, as named in our 2010 Best Of Phoenix issue.

Veteren Shane Kennedy ("Best Old Hipster DJ") will spin in the general vicinity of young up-and-comer Hartbrakes, Anthony Heart, ("Best Young Hipster DJ").

Bum bum bummmmmmm.

Shane, of course, is best known for his Thursday and Friday nights at Bikini Lounge and Sunday Nights at The Roosevelt. Anthony is part of the Downtime night every
Tuesday at Lost Leaf. Those venues are in close proximity, but nothing else about their style or song selection crosses over. These guys are night and day -- and hearing them spin in the same venue on the same night is a rare treat to be savored.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
