SLCene Suggests: Henry Rollins at The State Room
AN EVENING WITH HENRY ROLLINS: CAPITALISM, THE STATE ROOM, Sunday, 8 p.m., $30
Even if Henry Rollins had done nothing after his stint as lead singer of punk legends Black Flag, he would still be a towering figure of American alternative culture. The fact that he’s spent the past 30 years expanding his artistic reach via writing, acting, leading the Rollins Band and entrancing spoken-word performances is proof that the passion he showed as a long-haired punk rocker is still boiling inside the guy. If you’ve never seen him do spoken-word, you’re in for a treat–it’s part standup comedy, part history lesson, part political diatribe, part travelogue and all entertaining.
