Crooked Little Sons
The first band I saw on Sunday were new to me. I’d never heard of Crooked Little Sons, but I really enjoyed their show! It was the perfect start to the day 🙂
Crooked Little Sons play punk/blues/rock music and their performance was lively, energetic, and fun. It’s up-tempo and feel good music, from a band that really entertains. Definitely a band to watch.
If you follow the blog, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Fragile Things. I’ve been following them for over a year now. If you missed it, you can read my interview with the band HERE.
Sunday at Amplified Festival was the first opportunity I’d had to see the band live and I was very much looking forward to it.
Fragile Things have released some brilliant songs and they treated the crowd at Amplified to a fantastic selection of tracks, which included most of the songs from their debut EP, “Broken Sun”, and also their latest single “Better Than This”.
This 4-piece produce quality rock music that makes you want to dance and sing along. Their performance at Amplified was one of the highlights of the weekend for me.
Set list: Open Cage/ Enemy Is I/ Memories and Wine/ Bastard Child/ Better Than This/ Broken Sun
It was also nice to get the chance to meet and chat to the band after the show. I discovered that they’ll be playing the Redrock Festival in London in September. More details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/205785483272028/
They also have quite a few other dates lined up this year. Keep an eye on their social media for details. If you like great rock music, this is a band you should check out.

Another band that I’d never heard of but that really impressed me were Panic Switch. I’ve since seen on their Facebook page that they have a debut EP, “Freedom”, coming soon; I’ll be looking out for that!
Panic Switch play awesome heavy metal music and I was hooked from the start. I really enjoyed their show. It was engaging and full of heavy guitar riffs and melodies. Try and catch them live if you can.
