Bubble Puppy
Friday, June 23


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 and 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 effort, the band to split up. However, almost four decades later, the psychedelic rock and rollers 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. With The Damn Torpedoes, $18-$60, 7pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., 210-223-2830 — Chris Conde
