ROCK | The Big Lonesome 

The Big Lonesome gives off the vibes of that sophisticated indie band you fell in love with in college. Fans of seminal rock groups from the 1990's and beyond, like Built to Spill and Pavement, can find plenty to latch onto with this quartet. The Big Lonesome's frontman Chad Gosselin knows his way around a catchy melody, too, but there's enough muddy guitar ambiance to keep the band's grungy sensibility from devolving into pop. The Boston band is touring behind the strength of two engaging EPs, including "Fascination" from 2017, with a full-length album in the works. Coping Skills, Vinyl Orange Ottoman, and The Strangers round out the bill.

The Big Lonesome performs Tuesday, May 8, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $7-$9. bugjar.com; thebiglonesome.net.
