In these uncertain times, it can be hard to truly speak your mind, but not for Henry Rollins. The writer-journalist-comedian-musician is bringing his Spoken Word Tour to the House of Blues Houston for “a talking show.” The performer got his start with the legendary hardcore punk band Black Flag, with whom he toured until the late ‘80s, and Rollins says he always tries to find artistic inspiration in personal tragedy. “I don’t know what else you would do when things are bad,” he says. “You can’t let them run you over. The aim is always to overcome.” Ever since Black Flag dissolved, Rollins says, the thrill of his life remains live performance. “I am performance driven,” the activist shares. “I’ve never had any form of stage fright. I like what I do and have a great affection for my audience — I like to serve them. I never dial in a show. Every night, I go out and try to get it right.”

7 p.m. Monday. 1204 Caroline. For information, call 888-402-5837 or visit houseofblues.com/houston. $35 to $45.
