Bubble Puppy and The Damn Torpedoes

Fri., July 19, 8 p.m.
Sam's Burger Joint 330 E. Grayson St., San Antonio San Antonio


A lot of folks don’t realize that Texas’ contribution to ’60s psychedelic rock, while not as storied as California’s, was pretty damned significant. With homegrown bands like Moving Sidewalks and the 13th Floor Elevators priming local ears, Central Texas emerged as a tour hotspot for bands pumping fuzz through big amps. Maybe that explains how San Antonio psych act Bubble Puppy landed an opening slot for the Who back in 1967. Half a century later, Bubble Puppy is still around — and with a newish LP called Certified Badass. Don’t miss these Texas legends as they perform their hit “Hot Smoke and Sassafras” along with other amazing tunes featuring fleet-fingered fretwork. The Damn Torpedoes — a Tribute to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers — rounds out the bill. (210) 223-2830

Speedway (Smiths and Morrisey tribute)

Fri., July 19, 8 p.m.
The Amp Room 2407 N St. Mary's, San Antonio St. Mary's strip

Buy Tickets$12


With Morrissey becoming more and more problematic — see his recent support of far-right groups in his native England — fans of the former Smiths singer may feel conflicted about supporting his live shows (when he actually puts in an appearance). Speedway, a live tribute to Morrisey and The Smiths, might be just the solution to enjoying Moz’s music in a live setting without those guilty feels.

Wonderland of the Americas Amphitheatre 4522 Fredericksburg Rd., San Antonio San Antonio

,
For fans of smooth jazz in San Antonio and beyond, the Balcones Heights Jazz Festival is an institution at this point. The free festival, now in its 26th year, consistently offers up some of the best regional talent in the ear-candy subgenre. This year, the event organizers expect, based on previous numbers, to welcome more than 4,000 festival-goers over the course of the four Fridays of the fest. The latest installment of the quirky festival has the unique distinction of featuring an all-woman lineup — a rarity for any genre of music, really — for the very first time. Festival organizer Lorenzo Nastasi said in a press release that the idea to go all-woman this year was inspired by, and in part to be understood as a celebration of, the many women in leadership positions in Balcones Heights. It’s ultimately an admirable and exciting move by the organizers. Slated performers are Wednesday Ball and Ragan Whiteside (July 12), MiChelle Garibay-Carey and Jessy J (July 19), Elizabeth Mis and Jeanette Harris (July 26) and Kayla Waters and Lindsey Webster (August 2). Each performer will, as per tradition, get more than an hour of stage time.

Built to Spill

Sat., July 20, 7 p.m.
Paper Tiger 2410 N. St. Mary's St., San Antonio St. Mary's strip

Buy from TicketFly$25-$28


Even though Built to Spill was in the 2-1-0 just last year, the Boise, Idaho natives’ contribution to modern indie rock may be worth checking out twice in such a short period. This time, the band’s touring to celebrate the 20th anniversary of definitive album Keep it Like a Secret, the more-cohesive and mature followup to its major label debut Perfect from Now On. More psychedelic and musically sweeping than many of its ’90s alt-rock counterparts, Built to Spill has deservedly emerged an icon of that musical era.

Wetzel’s high-energy show in support of his album Harold Saul High will infuse the energy of rock with the good-ol’ feel of country and give fans “Something to Talk About” on the banks of Canyon Lake.
