Around the time that a band starts to gain popularity in Arizona, they’re faced with a crossroad: Stay or go.

Indie band Breakup Shoes didn't just to stay — they take full ownership over being a Phoenix band.

Before the coronavirus social distancing practices, The Show met with them in an alley, down some stairs and next to the pool tables at Valley Bar.

Songwriter and lead singer Nick Zawisa began by talking about why the band resisted the temptation to move to Los Angeles.
