out and about: king tut’s summer nights 2013;

Hey, don’t you hate it when all the Scottish bloggers post the same thing at the same time? Because that’s why I never got around to talking about this year’s King Tut’s Summer Nights around the time that the lineup was announced! You know the drill by now: the festival, which will see 60 new bands play Glasgow’s joint most famous stage over 15 nights, features some of the hottest unsigned talent in Scotland. My highlights? Probably Arches, So Many Animal Calls, Roman Nose and Fake Major, whose set I so loved at T in the Park on Saturday morning.

This year there will once again be special midnight guests playing in the bar (Blood Relatives! Carnivores! Honeyblood! Beerjacket!) and blogger DJs. I’ve been given a coveted first Friday night slot, which is concerning because so far my set consists of “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus and THAT’S IT.

Full lineup below, and you can pick up tickets for all shows from Ticketmaster (boo!) and the bar.
