The Best Shows in Houston This Week: Touche Amore, Demi Lovato, Neutral Milk Hotel, etc.

Neutral Milk Hotel
Warehouse Live, February 19

First of all this show has been sold out for weeks, so if you don't know about it by now...good luck. Until it was announced, most of us thought we had a better chance of seeing a purple elephant born at the Houston Zoo than a local date by Neutral Milk Hotel. Not many albums from 15 years ago are as revered or imitated as their In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, enigmatic auteur Jeff Mangum's Citizen Kane of anxiety and lush '60s pop; it's like an exquisite, lo-fi Faberge egg. Mangum and his cohorts never even made much of an attempt to follow it up, but not many people ever thought they needed to. The Aeroplane lineup nonetheless reunited in early 2013, and now here they are. CHRIS GRAY

Dr. Dog
Warehouse Live, February 20

The members of Dr. Dog must have a thing for furry animals. These lo-fi, surf-rock worshipers started as an offshoot by a couple of the dudes in the now-defunct indie band Raccoon, before their buddies in My Morning Jacket catapulted them out of obscurity by hand-picking them as tour mates. Things have only grown from there, through eight albums including the new B-Room and everyone from The New York Times to Rolling Stone now singing the Philly-based crew's D.I.Y. weirdo praises. With Saint Rich. ANGELICA LEICHT
