Henry Rollins Takes on 'Capitalism'Doors at 7:00 p.m.

Henry Rollins Takes on
HENRY ROLLINS hits the campaign trail this fall for a two-month tour hitting all 50 state capitals – starting September 6 at Hawaiian Brian's in Honolulu, HI – and wrapping up on the eve of the Presidential election at the 9:30 Club in the nation's capital. Titled Capitalism, Henry's latest talking tour offers not so much a voting guide as an outside viewpoint – and an unflinching quest for truth that's sadly lacking in the profit-driven American mass media.

On Capitalism, Henry will continue to dish anecdotes gleaned and perspective gained from the road less traveled – sharing experiences that include recent visits to North Korea, Mongolia, Bhutan, Vietnam, India, Tibet, Sudan, Uganda, Haiti and Cuba. And in the spirit of the season, of course, expect both pointed commentary and wry observations about the American democratic process as it unfolds.

In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. "Rollins is many things," says the Washington Post, "diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter." Entertainment Weekly's list includes "Punk-rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can't do?" TV Guide has more concisely called him a "Renaissance Man" – but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be "workaholic."

For better than a quarter century, Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as front man for both Rollins Band and Black Flag.

When he's not living out of a backpack, Rollins is constantly at work as an actor, radio DJ, author of more than 20 books, and running his publishing company and record label 2.13.61. Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.'s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, is a regular columnist for LA Weekly, and is hosting National Geographic's new three-part series Animal Underworld With Henry Rollins.
