NonCOMM recap: Greg Graffin swaps punk anthems for folk jams
Greg Graffin is one interesting dude. In addition to being the frontman for Bad Religion, Graffin also has a Ph.D. and lectures UCLA and Cornell students on science and religion in his spare time — because, you know, that’s what punk rockers do.
Graffin proceeded to raise the ‘most interesting man in the world bar’ even higher during his NonCOMM set tonight by showing that he also dabbles in being a bona fide country-folkster. Performing tracks off his latest album, Millport, Graffin swapped socially-conscious punk for catchy folk jams. Amidst tongue-in-cheek humor and completely epic violin solos, Graffin’s feel-good set was the perfect start to capping off an incredible Day One at NonCOMM.
