Old Bowie Town Grille, 8604 Chestnut Avenue, Bowie, Maryland
Around 1980 Rockpile was the greatest purveyor of roots/pub rock and power pop on the planet.
Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremner and Terry Williams only released one album as Rockpile, but actually made four albums together - record company legalities forced them to be titled under either Dave or Nick’s names instead.
Last year, four DC area musicians, all huge Rockpile fans, formed Pile O’ Rocks. The music sounds as fresh today as it did in 1981.
Bruce Moyer (40 Dollar Fine), Louie Newmyer (Rock-A-Sonics), Dave Egelhofer (Soul Crackers), and Ronnie Smith (Cactus Liquors) are Pile O’ Rocks. Whether you know the songs or not, come on out cuz you will dig the energetic, clever, passionate, danceable and fun music that Pile O’Rocks plays!!!
