With a roar and more than a few snarls, Nashville rockers Bully ignited the Teragram Ballroom on Thursday night, visiting in support of their sophomore album “Losing.” The hard-touring trio spun a set of songs from the new release and 2015’s “Feels Like,” finally inspiring a huge mosh pit in the middle of the room near the end of the set when they performed “Running.”

At one point a fan handed lead singer Alicia Bognanno his EP, asking her to listen to it. She said she would, since she is “stuck in a van for eight hours a day.” But she added: “I think you think I have more power than I actually do.” Highlights of the set included the songs “Spiral,” “Focused,” ‘I Remember,” “Six” and “Trash.” The band finished off the night with an encore of “Milkman,” “Kills To Be Resistant” and “Hate and Control.”

Potty Mouth opened up the night to a healthy number of early arrivals, followed by Chicago’s Melbelly, who tore through 40 minutes of blissful noise-rock with only a few thank-yous in between songs.
