[Look for your weekly fix from the one and only Henry Rollins right here on West Coast Sound every Thursday.]

Henry Rollins doesn't keep his political opinions quiet; in a column last fall about the Occupy protesters he recounted how Sen. Rand Paul "made a fool of himself trying to compare them to a 'French mob'" and spoke of a "cross-eyed" Glenn Beck and his "paranoid method-acting rants."

You can likely expect more such irreverent insight on his just-announced Capitalism tour this fall, which will hit the capitals of all 50 states, kicking off in Honolulu, Hawaii, and finishing up in Washington, D.C., the night before the election.

The dates are below, as are more crazy pics of Rollins as Uncle Sam. Oh, and the Shepard Fairey-designed tour poster!

"We will be going all the way up to election eve," Rollins says in the press release. "It's always a great time to be in America, but this will be the high point of this year's tour. Shepard Fairey did a great poster for the tour to make it extra noteworthy. I can't wait to start this one."

In addition to the political barbs and riffs, expect Rollins to also speak on his never-ending tour across the world, which has taken him from Australia to South Africa to Canada, and that's only the past few months.

Tickets go on sale this Friday; more info on Rollins' site. Dates are below, and, on the next page, more pictures of Rollins in the Uncle Sam get-up!
