Henry Rollins

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word

Former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins is also revered for his writings, along with his popular "talking" shows. From Siberia to war-ravaged Iraq to the smog of Los Angeles, Rollins has seen the world from the stage and from ground-level. He laughs at himself, suffers no fools, and marvels at the road that he's traveled. Rollins currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.'s NPR affiliate KCRW, in addition to writing weekly columns for the LA Weekly and Rolling Stone Australia. In 2013, after previously anchoring shows for IFC and National Geographic, Henry joined the History Channel's H2 network as host of the TV show "10 Things You Don't Know About." In 2014, he received the prestigious Ray Bradbury Creativity Award in recognition for his lifelong contribution to the arts, his passion for social activism, and his intense passion for the importance of maintaining books and libraries.

The Alarm


The Alarm, formed in 1977, stormed out of Wales in the early '80s, full of bluster and brashness and bombast (they matched U2's energy as an opening act on the "War" tour) and a self-titled I.R.S EP in 1983 with the anthem "The Stand." They folowed that with the smash anthem, "Sixty-Eight Guns." The original lineup broke up in 1989 and re-formed in 2004 ... just in time for singer Mike Peters to be diagnosed with leukemia the following year. He's overcome that after much chemotherapy and treatment, and still fronts the band.
