Bully’s sophomore album is set for release on October 20 and they’ll be in town for a gig at Thalia Hall on November 7 (tickets here). The band was formed by Alicia Bognanno and although they’re out of Nashville, she spent time in Chicago as an intern with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, so we’re betting that she’ll have a few friends in the house when the band takes the stage in Pilsen this November. Hopefully you’re enjoying your first taste of the new Bully record, and after you finish up with that, dig into the rest of this week’s selections.
