Jeremiah the Innocent — the iconic frog depicted in Austin’s Hi, How Are You mural and made famous by a T-shirt worn by Kurt Cobain — is a gateway drug into the music of its owner, Daniel Johnston. Once hooked, the listener will find the ATX transplant’s melodies masked by the lack of polish that makes up the bulk of his discography. Beyond the fuzz and grit, a brilliance is found in this form of music, in the purest sense of the word. It’s pretty catchy, too. Toted by many respected musicians as the premier singer-songwriter in independent circles, Johnston lives up to the hype — if you’re willing to abandon the concept of conventional songwriting and shiny production. With Dana Falconberry. $20, 8pm Thu, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertiger.queueapp.com— Shannon Sweet
