Henry Rollins Travel Slideshow

henry-rollins-travel-slideshow-tickets_01-17-18_17_59d78ffd05be1.jpg

In describing Henry Rollins, the tendency is to try to squeeze as many labels as possible into a single sentence. “Rollins is many things,” says the Washington Post, “diatribist, confessor, provocateur, humorist, even motivational speaker…his is an enthusiastic and engaging chatter.” Entertainment Weekly’s list includes “Punk Rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” TV Guide has more concisely called him a“Renaissance Man” but if Henry Rollins could be reduced to a single word, that word would undoubtedly be “workaholic.”When he’s not traveling, Rollins prefers a to keep a relentless schedule full of work, with gigs as an actor, author, DJ, voice-over artist and TV show host to name a few of the roles that keep his schedule full.

 

Rollins has toured the world as a spoken word artist, as frontman for both Rollins Band and Black Flag and as a solitary traveler with insatiable curiosity, favoring road-less-traveled locales in places such as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Siberia, North Korea, South Sudan and Iran. 

 

Henry currently hosts a weekly radio show on L.A.’s renowned 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, Henry received the prestigious Ray Bradbury Creativity Award in recognition for his lifelong contribution to the arts, his passion for social activism, as well as his intense passion for the importance of maintaining books and libraries.

In 2011, Henry became the voiceover for the Japanese luxury car Infiniti, for television commercials in the US and Canada.

Recurring guest star in the FX television drama Sons of Anarchy as neo-Nazi villain AJ Weston.

Starring role in the movie He Never Died from writer/director Jason Krawczyk (The Briefcase).

Henry’s previous acting credits span more than 20 films, including David Lynch’s Lost Highway, Bad Boys II, and voice work for animated series including American Dad, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, and others.

Film critic and interviewer on The Henry Rollins Show (and, previously, Henry’s Film Corner) on IFC, the Independent Film Channel

 

Spoken Word Performer

Henry is well known for his popular spoken word performances, or “talking shows” as he calls them, are a seamless (yet seemingly extemporaneous) mix of political commentary and personal anecdote, full of humor, outrage, pop culture, along with a healthy dose of skepticism.

2014 Keynote speaker at the LA Times Travel Convention 

In 2013, Henry was chosen as the keynote speaker at the Association of College and Research Librarians Conference. Keynote speaker at California Library Association Conference.

 

DJ
Henry hosts a great mix of all kinds of music weekly every Sunday night on L.A.’s acclaimed public

annotated playlists from this show

 

Author
Henry Rollins: The Column! appears every Thursday in the LA Weekly.

Author of more than 25 books, including the Black Coffee Blues, Broken Summers, and Get in the Van. Henry’s first book of photography, Occupants, was released in 2011 by Chicago Review Press, showcasing a stunning collection of photos and essays from Henry’s international travels.

Released on his own 2.13.61 imprint, Before the Chop: LA Weekly Articles 2011-2012) compiles Henry’s first 100 LA Weekly columns in their original, unedited form.

The travelogue series, A Grim Detail, A Mad Dash, A Preferred Blur and A Dull Roar document Henry’s travels through the years 2006-2010, detailing trips from Los Angeles, to Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe

 

Music
Before leading the Grammy-nominated Rollins Band, Henry made his mark as the frenetic frontman for legendary band Black Flag.

Rollins Band performed at the 37th Annual GRAMMY Awards, and was nominated for Best Metal Performance that same year for the song “Liar.”

Henry spearheaded the West Memphis Three benefit album Rise Above, which featured two dozen songs by his former band (Black Flag) played by his then-current Rollins Band line up.

GRANGER SMITH BIO “IN HIS OWN WORDS”

My name is Granger Smith. Sometimes long, fancy industry bios are helpful, but other times you just need to hear from the guy actually living it, so here’s my story. I was born and raised Texan, and I’m proud of that. I grew up along with two brothers, a couple of yellow labrador retrievers and parents that stayed together because they loved each other. My life changed when I was 14 years old and decided I would teach myself to play guitar. This was motivated by two things: I thought the guitar would make girls pay attention to me, and George Strait played one. By the time I turned 15, I was performing weekends on small town stages in North Texas, and doing my best as a fan club member to attend every George Strait concert within driving distance. Playing high school football was an important rite of passage for me, along with hunting and fishing, but the dream of a music career consumed me. At age 19, I was satisfied with enough songs I had written to make an album. As a freshman at Texas A&M, I was able to scrape together some studio money by pre-selling the album to friends around campus. For being just a kid, that album did pretty well. It landed me a songwriting deal with EMI Music Publishing in Nashville, and the following year, I took the leap to Tennessee. My time in Nashville was important. I absorbed the craft of songwriting from some of the best, learned my way around studios and recording gear, (which paid off for me later) and cut my teeth on countless stages as both a singer and as a steel guitar player for other singers. After four years, I had a shelf full of song demos, a little bit of music business know-how and a strong conviction to move back to Texas, finish my degree at Texas A&M, and start a band. Moving back to College Station meant basically starting over. The gigs were hard to book and when they did, nobody showed up to watch. But I was happy and felt creative. I saved money by making albums out of my house and using my band. We wore out vehicles and went from two pickup trucks, to a suburban, to a van and then another van. The trailers we towed got bigger, and ever so slowly, so did our crowds. I learned how to use a camera and some editing software for making homemade music videos and we made lots of them. My little brother, Tyler joined me in 2008. He traded a pretty good job at the bank to jump in an old van and sell t-shirts in honky-tonk dive bars. I think he did it not only because he shared the same vision as me, but also because his competitive nature was excited about proving a bunch of people wrong. And that’s exactly what we did. Together we conspired and worked from the ground up with the goal of not only building an artist, but a brand. We embraced social media, searched for real connections with fans, studied our predecessors and ignored our doubters. The good shows helped pay for all the bad ones, and the songs that sold helped fund all the others that didn’t. We put communities first, knowing that without the people, we were without a job. We created alter-egos through videos to help promote the music and that’s where Earl Dibbles Jr. came from in the summer of 2011. It started as a short, funny video that my brothers and I filmed out where my parents live in Central Texas, but it turned out to be something that completely changed the shape of my career. I actually like to think of it as an “intentional accident” because as planned, the video went viral and became a huge promotional tool for my music. But we had no way to know if it would actually work, especially since many of my videos before it never caught fire. In the early morning of April 16, 2013, I woke up and checked the iTunes store on my phone with tired eyes. I was absolutely shocked to see my new album, Dirt Road Driveway sitting at #1. Things were rapidly changing on the road, too. We were seeing sold out shows in markets we had never played, and a passion in fans unlike anything I had seen before. After independently releasing 7 studio albums, 1 live album and 2 EPs, I finally signed my first record deal in 2015. I met some great people at Broken Bow Music Group (BBR Music Group) in Nashville who sought us out, believed in my dedication and wanted to take what I was already doing, and magnify the message. We worked together not only as colleagues, but as friends unified on the same mission. Within only weeks of the signing, my debut single “Backroad Song” was a hit at mainstream country radio faster than any of us expected. A few years ago, I was standing with my boots in red, sandy, Iraqi soil watching a beautifully majestic Middle Eastern sunset, when one of my band members asked me, “Can you believe music got us here?” No, I can’t. What a journey it has been since I decided to chase this crazy dream. We’ve played 10 countries, 3 continents, even the White House a few times, and I still can’t believe it all started with a few guitar chords. In my song called “Sleeping On The Interstate,” I wrote, “Connecting map dots like poets and prisoners, trying to live more like a lover than sinner, slave to dreams so far away.” That’s me. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the music business, it’s that you don’t really choose this life, you are this life. That’s the truth no matter if you’re selling albums or not. I do what I love and love what I do, and there’s no sweeter freedom than that.

Brett Young

Named as the only Country act on Shazam’s “Emerging Artists of 2017,” Brett Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed “Caliville” style. The CMA New Artist of the Year nominated entertainer, who Rolling Stone Country raved is “destined for mass appeal,” released his GOLD-certified, self-titled, debut album on BMLG Records last year. Recorded in Nashville with producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett, Steven Tyler), Brett penned 11 of the 12 tracks, including his current No. 1 single “Like I Loved You” and back-to-back No. 1 hits – PLATINUM-certified “Sleep Without You” and “In Case You Didn’t Know.” The latter solidified Brett as the first Country artist to hit the PLATINUM-certification sales mark with a song released in 2017 and has reached the 2X PLATINUM sales mark. With over 160 million views, the video was No. 1 on Vevo’s Country Chart for six consecutive weeks and Young is the only artist to have two videos on Vevo’s Top Country Videos Chart for 2017. Previously nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Choice Country Song, “In Case You Didn’t Know” has also been up for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2017 CMT Music Awards. Brett has also garnered an ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year nomination, two Association of Independent Music Publisher (AIMP) Awards nods: Writer of the Year and Song of the Year for “Sleep Without You” and was honored at the 2017 ASCAP Country Awards for a Top Country Song with “Sleep Without You.” The California native is recently wrapped his first headlining trek, the CALIVILLE TOUR, which sold out all 17 dates. This year, in addition to his own headline shows, he will join Superstar Thomas Rhett his LIFE CHANGES TOUR.

Ice King's Holiday In Ice

One of the Lomangino children was nearing that age where kids figure out the Santa Claus thing. So, the Lomangino family decided to do something magical and special for the children for one more Christmas before they all figured it out.

Everyone loved the idea and immediately began to work together on ideas to create the magic of Christmas at the family's Cold Storage business. The world works in weird ways when you need it to, and through conversations with friends, we were introduced to Ed Jarrett, an artist who happens to be in the Guinness Book of World's Records for building the world's tallest sand castle. Well, wouldn't you know, Ed is also is a world class ice sculptor? So he came aboard and helped formulate last year's theme, The Nutcracker.

Using the family's Ice King Cold Storage facility, the entire team worked to create a wonderland, sculpted of ice, set to the theme of the holiday classic, The Nutcracker. The Lomangino children loved it and it was so great, that the family decided to share the magic with the public. Incredibly, 10,000 people from all over came out during the holiday season to enjoy what is quickly becoming the Jersey Shore's Premiere Holiday Display. We think you and your family will love this year's theme, The 12 Days of Christmas. The Ice King family is very excited to present it to you.

Merry Christmas from the Ice King Family to yours.

Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market

Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market

The Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market takes place three times per year at the historic Roebling Wire Works building in Trenton, New Jersey. Our team embraces a life-long love of punk rock and hardcore, DIY ethics, the arts, tattoos, copious amounts of coffee, the occasional shot of Jameson and a solid, well-styled quiff. The mission of founder Joseph Kuzemka was to create a flea market experience in his hometown that is unlike any other, bringing together vendors that touch upon the aforementioned themes while adding the component of gourmet food truck cuisine in a safe, family-friendly shopping environment. Our market is a curated collection of more than 200 vendors from eight states that sell everything from vintage clothing, original artwork, antiques, handmade jewelry, t-shirts, vintage toys, vinyl, bone jewelry, taxidermy, as well as every other sort of interesting curiosity or unique collectible imaginable.  

We held our first event in 2013 with just over 50 vendors and two food trucks, and have now grown into our larger home, just down the street, with the addition of a dozen food trucks, special attractions, celebrity appearances, our legendary Black Swag Bags, and much, much more! The Huffington Post named us one of the Best Flea Markets in America in 2014, and that is due in large part to the truly symbiotic relationship that exists between us and our vendors. This talented tally of creative folks are our life’s blood, and we pride ourselves in providing a low-cost, first-class retail platform for local artisans and makers that allows them to bring high-quality goods direct to a large customer base. There are countless other punk rock flea markets, but we’d like to think that our unbelievably hardworking and dedicated team puts on the one of the best shows of this kind in the entire world.  

Make your way down to New Jersey’s Capital City, and come see what the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market is all about!
