The Damn Torpedoes and Bubble Puppy

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

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.
