ROCKPILE is a collaboration between David Meltzer, legendary poet, musician, and essayist, and Michael Rothenberg, poet, songwriter and editor of Big Bridge Press. In the tradition of the troubadour and with the spirit of improvisation and collaboration, the poets will journey through eight U.S. cities and perform poetry, composed on the road, in a spontaneous fusion, with local musicians in each city.
