Bully to bring Losing to Snug Harbor

Bully to bring Losing to Snug Harbor

Almost everyone could agree that the best music is felt. For that, authenticity and honesty are prescribed. When you add in hard work and attention to detail, all the things that happen behind the scenes usually output quality that is felt and random seen, meaning the phrase “hard work pays off” is like, genuine for once. Recently, Nashville’s Bully, fronted by Alicia Bognanno, have received much earned praise on the heels of the recent album release Losing, which delivers a very direct and personal feeling throughout. Bognanno, as the songwriter and production engineer, shapes a familiar sound that, with her perspective and expertise, has earned them a worthy amount of attention as they continue to make their name their way.

With two well received full length albums, the band now has a full catalog of material to tour on and an eager fan base looking to catch them out on the road. Their 4/28 show at Snug Harbor in Charlotte, NC is our chance to catch them out on this current tour. Making their second appearance here in the past two years, with the first show being a full house, we excitedly expect this upcoming appearance to be filled to brim as well.

On tour with Bully and sharing in the indie guitar fuzz punk vibe will be Shellshag (Starcleaner Records), Brooklyn’s latest duo out to change up what playing a set looks like. According to various friends, and their own Facebook page, Shellshag aren’t your average performers. We all know what it means to be DIY, but Shellshag are exploring inch of the word. With a homemade mic stand, bells sewn into their clothes, and a just-rough-enough sound, this band will surely catch a few (or more) ears in the Queen City.

Collectively the two should provide the perfect atmosphere when paired with the ambiance of Snug Harbor to create a great night of rock music. Grab your tickets here so we can hang!
