In what should be a far edgier travel slide show than the kind that usually occur at libraries and community centers, the great Post-Punk singer, spoken-word artist, writer and cultural commentator Henry Rollins is bringing his Travel Slideshow 2018 to Music Hall Ballroom at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 20. He'll be showing his favorite photographs of his travels, from Baghdad to Pyongyang; South Sudan to Nepal. Rollins first came to public attention in the 1980s as a member of Hardcore band Black Flag, who played the Jockey Club in the day. 

Rollins is also, perhaps, an edgy act for the Cincinnati Arts Association, which is hosting his appearance as part of its 2018-19 presenting season. The fall arts season is certainly heating up, with new events aimed at a more culturally aware audience already starting to overlap — Rollins' show is the same day as The Decemberists at Taft Theatre.

Tickets for Rollins go on sale Friday (July 27) at 10 a.m. at CincinnatiArts.org. They are $30 or $155 for a VIP Experience that also includes a meet-and-greet. For more information about Rollins, visit henryrollins.com.
