Henry Rollins can be terrifying. Hes always angry, often tense. His ripped, sculpted body swaggers around like a mack truck waiting to decimate you at the next mention of Ann Coulter. He yells a lot. And his icy glare hits you like a hundred bloody fists thrashing about in the mosh pits of 1982, the heyday of hardcore and the seminal hardcore-punk band Rollins fronted, Black Flag.
But Black Flag played its last show in 1986 (if you dont count a few reunion shows in 2003, of which Rollins was not a part). And Rollins has moved on creatively since then. He started the Henry Rollins Band, got his own show on the Independent Film Channel the politically charged Henry Rollins Show became an actor, a spoken-word artist, a comedian, and ever-present pop/cult figure. Wednesdays show at Revolution will feature the punk legend as comedian, presenting his irreverent mix of political diatribes, self-deprecation, and humorous observations about anything from dating to music to masturbation.
Doors open at Revolution (200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $25. Call 954-727-0950, or visit jointherevolution.net.
