Renaissance Man

Henry Rollins can be terrifying. He’s 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 don’t 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. Wednesday’s 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
Wed., March 3, 7 p.m., 2010
