HENRY ROLLINS tells it like it is without sugar-coating anything. The tattooed and muscle-bound former Black Flag frontman returns to Atlanta for one more round of stand-up hilarity with the Recountdown Tour. This time he's celebrating the shaky end of the Bush regime, among other things. Rollins' socially and politically charged rants are filled with moments of brilliant observations, poignant monologues and spoken-word bouts that are intensely funny, sometimes horrifying and always thought-provoking. $25. 8 p.m. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. 404-524-7354. www.variety-playhouse.com.
