Rollins, considered a towering figure in the days of hardcore rock, when he fronted the band Black Flag (during a performance at the SOB club in Little Rock, Rollins ran around the club and onstage wearing only his black sports shorts). He then included acting, writing, radio hosting and social activism in his career. He now presents ‘spoken word’ shows and, according to Rev Room co-owner Chris King, his show will be about ‘what he’s been up to during the shutdowns’.
