There must be something in the water at Middle Tennessee State University. Sharon Van Etten attended classes in Murfreesboro, as did Julien Baker and Bully's Alicia Bognanno, who earned a degree in audio recording before getting an internship at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studios in Chicago.
After playing in Nasvhille's King Arthur, Bognanno formed Bully and released a demo tape before gaining the attention of Columbia Records label Startime International. Check out music from Bully below, and get to the Hi-Tone by 8 p.m. tonight with $10 in your hand. Greys from Toronto open.
