Jorge Graupera played guitar in Plains, whose 2011 self-titled record was named the New Times Broward-Palm Beach's best local record of 2011. The group itself took the title of Best Supergroup in Miami New Times' 2012 Best Of edition. Before that, he played guitar in Guajiro, a visceral, politically charged Cuban punk rock act that opened for the likes of Flogging Molly and Rancid. And before that, as the guitarist for The Brand, Graupera found himself at the heart of the early-2000s indie-rock scene in South Florida, along with bands such as Humbert and The Bikes.
Now, at the end of his career, Graupera has gone back to the beginning.
