Bubble Puppy
Saturday, July 9

Named after a children’s game in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, SA psychedelic rock ‘n’ rollers Bubble Puppy formed in San Antonio in 1966 to help steer the South Texas psych scene towards (relative) commercial success. Their ’68 hit “Hot Smoke and Sassafras,” a viciously tight, wandering tune of fantasy imagery and self-discovery, went to No. 14 on the Billboard chart. Though Los #3 Dinners never gained the national hype that Bubble Puppy once commanded, their SA-specific songs like "Livin' Inside the Loop" reveal an understanding of San Antonio like none other. $15-$50, 8pm, Sam's Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., (210) 223-2830
