Last night I went to one of the best poetry readings I've been to in a long long time. It was a Monsters of Poetry reading at the Gates of Heaven in Madison. The featured readers were Steve Healey and Matthew Zapruder. Here's a link to one of Healey's poems that appeared in American Poetry Review. And here's a link to Zapruder's blog.
If either of these poets show up in your town, get yourself a front-row seat.
