We're not sure when or where, but we got this teaser for the second annual Phoenix Independents Bowl by e-mail yesterday. Last year's event was a great one, with bands like What Laura Says, Kinch and The Stiletto Formal rolling against teams representing pretty much every music-related business in town. Sadly, two New Times teams got our asses handed to us as Desert Living somehow won the thing.
The organizer, Psyko Steve, still hasn't told us when or where yet, but rest assured we'll be there. E tu Desert Living?
