The initial line-up for the ‘Nothing Ever Happens Here’ gig series at Summerhall in Edinburgh has been unveiled, with RM Hubbert, Randolph’s Leap, The Phantom Band and James Yorkston all confirmed for shows this Spring.

The series begins on 26 March with a headline show by Broken Records – the band’s Jamie Sutherland is the Summerhall booker behind the new gigs, which will be held in the venue’s 500-capacity Dissection Hall and will feature “at least one” Edinburgh band on each bill.

Gigs from Glasgow garage rockers Paws and Fife folk luminary Yorkston follow in April, before a glut of shows in May including an album launch show from Rozi Plain, and ‘The Girl Effect’ featuring TeenCanteen, hip-hop group Stanley Odd and spoken-word ace Jenny Lindsay of Rally and Broad among others. US folk-rockers Sun Kil Moon have also been added to the programme, with a headline show on 10 August.

Introducing the gigs, Jamie Sutherland said: “We hope to foster a spirit of cross collaboration between musicians, visual artists and the community at large to create a unique gig venue and experience, utilising the best of emerging and established Scottish talent."
