On Tour: Henry Rollins

I can’t imagine anything that will soothe me better than hearing Henry Rollins tell me the truth.

Henry Rollins entered the public eye as the singer in a punk band. He transitioned into a writer, spoken word poet, and actor. The thing that ties all of this creative work together is honesty. You can’t listen to his music and not know that he means it. You can’t read or hear his poetry and not realize that he feels every word down the bottom of his feet. As an actor—even as a silly character—he has a level of intensity that draws the eye and attention.

Honesty—integrity—is unfortunately a rare commodity these days. When Henry Rollins speaks at The Pageant on November 16, our country will be a week past Election Day. After the most vitriolic and rhetoric-laden election I can remember, I can’t imagine anything that will soothe me better than hearing Henry Rollins tell me the truth. His truth. Honest and unflinching. I believe it will be a balm to my troubled soul to know that, for a few hours, I can believe someone about anything.

Even if it hurts. | Melissa Cynova
