Phoenix Independents Bowl to Return in June

Musicians of Phoenix, start limbering up your wrists and get practicing. Not at bettering your strumming or drumming abilities, but rather your skills at tossing strikes and spares. That's because the Phoenix Independents Bowl is back after a three-year absence.

Local concert promoter "Psyko" Steve Chilton announced earlier this week that the charity bowling tournament -- which has featured a number of Valley musicians and bands participating along with folks from local independently owned bars, venues, and businesses -- will return in June.
