About Capitalism

Henry Rollins traverses 50 states with a politically-themed talk show, culminating with an election-eve performance in Washington D.C. on November 5th. This two-month tour will stop in each state capital -- starting September 6 at Hawaiian Brian's in Honolulu, HI, venturing through places like the Diamond Ball Room in Oklahoma City, T.F. Riggs High School in Pierre, South Dakota and ending up in Washington, D.C., Henry's hometown. Henry's latest tour offers not so much a voting guide, but an unveiling of Henry's very own political viewpoint -- an unflinching quest for truth.

About Henry Rollins

For better than a quarter century, Henry Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and -- without a microphone -- as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity. When he's not living out of a suitcase, Rollins is constantly at work as an actor, radio DJ, author of more than 20 books, and running his publishing company and record label 2.13.61. Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.'s renowned NPR affiliate KCRW, and is a regular contributor to VanityFair.com with his "Straight Talk Espresso" blog.
