Here comes the summer (really)

STILL washing the T in the Park mud off your wellies? Gleeful that you stayed home (and dry) last weekend?

This week you won’t have to venture further than the city centre to embrace the festival experience.

The staff at King Tut’s are staging a now-annual event called Summer Nights.

The 2012 slot has 60 acts lined up over 15 nights, starting today (Thursday).

It’s all about showcasing the best of Scottish talent.

Expect indie galore from headliners like Pronto Mama and Fires Attract (the latter supported by southside band Scarlett Shift, no less).

Then there’s (to name a few more) hip-hop from Hector Bizerk, electro-rock from Xavia, folk from Beerjacket and Brown Bear & the Bandits and much-praised electro sounds from Midnight Lion.

Scene’s pick of the bunch is folk pop from eight-piece ensemble Randolph’s Leap — but we’ll leave it to you to pick your highlights worthy of those few and far between summer nights.

Summer Nights runs for two weeks from July 12.
