Past Event Off the Wall 2012 – Henry Rollins: The Long March 

CAL_20111114_rollins_main

Spoken word artist, musician, actor, author, radio talk show host and iconic cultural gadfly, Henry Rollins, is above all else a self-described “workaholic,” and best known as the lead singer for the intense hardcore Rollins Band and the seminal punk band Black Flag.  Rollins has written more than 20 books, runs his own publishing company and record label 2.13.61., and hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.’s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW.  Rollins is also currently a regular columnist for LA Weekly, and is hosting National Geographic’s new three-part series Animal Underworld with Henry Rollins.  Described by the New York Daily News as “some of the most provocative chit-chat around,” Henry’s spoken word performances – “talking shows,” as he calls them – are a seamless (yet seemingly extemporaneous) mix of humor and outrage; pop culture, political commentary and personal anecdote; healthy skepticism and rugged optimism.

“Diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.”

– Washington Post

Off the Wall 2012 is supported in part by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation
