With a straight-shooting, heart-on-your-sleeve grunge ethos, but plenty of genre-bending nuance to match, Bully takes punk, pop and garage rock on the steepest of emotional rollercoasters. The project, spearheaded by Alicia Bognanno, has released three lean full-length albums — all solid chapters in a candid story that’s still unraveling. The live show is exactly what you’d expect — raw, charged, thoughtful, simultaneously uplifting and crushing… everything rock should be.
