In the years since exiting emotive indie rock group Scooterbabe, Grafton Tanner has kept busy, penning his first book—a nonfiction dive into vaporwave—completing a master’s degree and diving headfirst into a musical project of his own. Tanner has helmed the avant-minded Superpuppet for roughly five years and released its first EP in 2018, the three-song Museum. Now, with a full-length prepped for release in 2020 that channels all the political, social and economic anxiety of our time, Tanner and Superpuppet show no signs of slowing down amid the chaos. Catch a smattering of the band’s latest material at The World Famous Thursday, where they’ll be joined by OHMU and Daughter Snow.
