Bubble Puppy

If you think Bubble Puppy’s only good song was their hit “Hot Smoke and Sassafras”, I urge you to dust off that album (or jump online) and re-listen to the record in its entirety. It’s a solid piece of rock ’n’ roll that deserves another whirl. After opening for The Who in 1967, the then-San Antonio-based band moved to Austin and signed a recording contract with Houston’s International Artists, a label shared by psych-rock familia the 13th Floor Elevators and Red Krayola. After parting ways with the label, the band changed their name to Demian and headed out to Los Angeles to record a new self-titled album. When that wasn’t as successful as their first effort, the band split up. However, almost four decades later, the psychedelic rockers resurfaced in 2011, with a few new members, to play the Austin Chronicle Music Awards and have been active ever since. If you can’t catch them this week, the band’s also slated to headline K23’s psych-rock fest, Psych Del Rio in September.

Randy’s Rodeo


Once a country-focused dance hall, this venue hosted the Ramones, Rush, L7, the Beastie Boys and Patti Smith in addition to an infamous 1978 Sex Pistols gig. Now its hosts bingo nights as Randy’s Bingo. KISS-FM DJs Joe Anthony and Lou Roney built an extension onto Randy's stage during the ’70s after booking Canadian prog-rock band Rush and realizing all of the equipment wouldn’t fit. For many, the Sex Pistols' gig (pictured) remains Randy's most legendary.
