Boston’s The Big Lonesome headline this week’s edition of Aurora’s free Monday concert series, but I’m far more interested in Songs To Drive Cars, a low-key folk-rock project that I think is just one singer-songwriter but might also be that singer-songwriter plus a drummer. (I haven’t seen him/them before and there’s no website or anything, so I’m basing this information on a drum-free Bandcamp EP with a drummer-having Youtube video.) It’s sort of bluesy but not in a way that’s trying too hard. The considerably more upbeat Russ Connors is also on the bill.
