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.

With the Damn Torpedoes, $18-$60, Fri May 18, 7pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., 210-223-2830.
