All three of these bands are up and comers that people should be paying attention to. Love them or hate them, Real Friends have pulled together a following that can't be denied. Personally, I really enjoy them and how relatable their songs are. I saw them last summer and am excited to see what sort of crowd they'll be drawing this time around. Candy Hearts are a band that I've seen a couple times this year already, touring with Penitmento and at Stay Sweet Fest. While they aren't exactly my cup of tea, they are definitely one of the catchiest bands out there right now and I can't help but sing along to "you're a bad ideaaaaa and I know it!" Stickup Kid is a band that in a world full of pop-punk still manages to bring something new to the game. I've been wanting to catch them live for a while, and am excited that they're making their way to the east coast this summer.
