Contrary to the grim and stoic title of Henry Rollins' latest spoken-word stand "The Long March" he's not the first person you think of when you hear the word "march." It's too slow and perfunctory a way to move for the incessantly restless Rollins methodical a movement though it may be. During the past year, he spearheaded the clean-water initiative "Drop in the Bucket" for emerging nations, released a book of photographic essays titled Occupants, and traveled the United States on his "50 State Capitals" tour all that and writing a regular column for the Music section of this here alternative weekly, too. It's not every veteran of punk's various lifelong brutalities who can still hack that schedule you don't see Mugger from Nig Heist holding forth with stories about exploring Southeast Asia but Rollins sets the bar high. And then does chin-ups. Largo at The Coronet, 366 N. La Cienega Blvd.; Tues.-Sat., Nov. 27-Dec. 1, 8 p.m.; $25. (310) 855-0350, largo-la.com.
