Moffat! Hubbert! Christmas!
Two of Glasgow’s finest, Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert, look in the mood for a right old knees-up when they play Cluny 2 in December.
“She’s a bombshell in leggings, a goddess in jeggings” is probably by favourite rhyming couplet of the year and you’ll find it on ‘Mz. Locum’ just one of the many super tracks on ‘Here Lies The Body’ the latest album from Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert. They’re following it with ‘Ghost Stories for Christmas’ (released 7 December) which will feature ghosts of love, haunting happy homes and fairy-lit bars; ghosts of memory, of haunted mirrors, pagan festivities, and unforgettable friends. And Moffat’s quiet, pensive storytelling finds a perfect partner in Hubbert’s intimately intricate, flamenco-flavoured guitar. Across eight new original compositions, and two deftly executed covers, they will be offering us an alternative view on the season to be jolly. Gather round their fire, lean in close, and give yourself the willies.Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert, Tuesday 11 December, Cluny 2, Ouseburn, Newcastle, 7.30pm, £14. thecluny.com
