Nothing Ever Happens Here Presents:

RM Hubbert 

RM Hubbert is a guitarist from Glasgow in Scotland. He writes music about love, death, friendship, mental illness and occasionally a dog called D Bone. It’s not as depressing as the previous sentence suggests.

One of Glasgow’s more prolific artists, RM Hubbert has released music under a variety of guises since 1993. It was El Hombre Trajeado’s triptych of albums released between 1995 and 2005 though, that really put Hubbert on the musical map, earning swathes of critical acclaim, three Peel Sessions and support slots with the likes of Sebadoh, Tortoise, Nick Cave, Deerhoof, Mùm, Mike Watt and The Delgados. Following El Hombre Trajeado’s demise, guitarist Hubbert took a break from playing live and began studying a host of different musical forms before returning to the scene in 2008 and self releasing his debut solo album ‘First & Last’, in March 2010. This album was later re- released on Scotland’s legendary Chemikal Underground Records in February 2011. The album’s nine instrumentals skilfully blended elements of flamenco and samba with contemporary melodies to create a truly unique, understated record.

Support – Lipsync for a Lullaby

Lipsync for a Lullaby is a band formed in Edinburgh, a string quartet (trio + drums). Led by composer/cellist Atzi, supported by friends he’s met during the years gigging in venues of the Scottish capital. Experimental it may sound, punk at its heart. In the previous years the band took part in ambitious grassroots gigs such as Electric Nights Festival (2014), Decagram Launch at Queenshall (2013), Limbo (2013). Their music was featured in Monkey Love Experiments, a short film nominated for BAFTA 2015. At Summerhall they will perform an unplugged strings trio set that will bring the cozy sphere ever so intimate.
