Summer Nights at King Tuts brings us music fans seven weeks of nonstop music to give us our fill. Post pandemic sees things just getting back to normal and I think that 27 nights of music helps to make up for missing a lot of it. Since being founded in 2011, the programme has been giving new and upcoming Scottish artists a place to debut, to play in a venue that has hosted many famous artists and feel the atmosphere. I love this event because there are so many different sounds being played in the heart of Glasgow, where music is part of the city.
BOOTlace was headlining tonight's event and from the packed venue I think that a lot of fans were looking forward to seeing them. This Edinburgh based Scottish indie rock band will definitely be one to watch because the set that they just performed was one that I will remember for days and weeks to come. Their sound was fresh and the vocals definitely incorporated the Scottish accent, something that you don't hear very often but when you do, you remember it.
Not to mention that they seemed like really down to earth people, stopping after a song to sing happy birthday to a fan and giving a special shoutout to another fan who had flown in to see them! This aspect just makes some shows that bit more special. I am glad that I went to see them tonight in one of my favourite venues in Glasgow. If you haven't headed down for the Summer Night gigs yet, I would recommend you do before it ends. You will hear some talented fresh artists, before they go and make themselves big names, and reserve the bragging rights of knowing them before they were famous.
