Henry Rollins: The Long March 2012 in Pittsburgh @ Carnegie Lecture Hall

Henry Rollins: The Long March 2012
March 17th, 2012 @ 8pm
Carnegie Lecture Hall

Spoken word artist, musician, actor, author, radio talk show host and iconic cultural gadfly Henry Rollins performs one of his "talking shows", seamless (yet seemingly extemporaneous) mix of humor and outrage; pop culture, political commentary and personal anecdote; healthy skepticism and rugged optimism.

Presented in conjunction with the Andy Warhol Museum, the largest museum in the country dedicated to a single artist.

via Wikipedia: After performing for the short-lived Washington D.C.-based band State of Alert in 1980, Rollins fronted the California hardcore punk band Black Flag from August 1981 until mid-1986. Following the band's breakup, Rollins soon established the record label and publishing company 2.13.61 to release his spoken word albums, as well as forming the Rollins Band, which toured with a number of lineups from 1987 until 2003, and during 2006.
Since Black Flag, Rollins has embarked on projects covering a variety of media. He has hosted numerous radio shows, such as Harmony in My Head on Indie 103, and television shows such as The Henry Rollins Show, MTV's 120 Minutes, and Jackass. He had a recurring dramatic role in the second season of Sons of Anarchy and has also had roles in several films. Rollins has also campaigned for various political causes in the United States, including promoting LGBT rights, World Hunger Relief, and an end to war in particular, and tours overseas with the United Service Organizations to entertain American troops.
