Celebrating five years as a band, Different Circle Record’s signing DAVE HUGHES & THE RFPB are headlining a charity benefit concert in Glasgow at The Old Hairdressers on Sunday the 26th of October

The concert will feature many stars of the Scottish music scene including Algernon Doll (Struggletown, Badge of Friendship), Chris Devotion (Armellodie Records), and Mark McCabe (Cat’s Aye! Records). The line-up is curated by Dave and the RFPB and brings together many acts that have shared bills and concerts with them over the years.

Dave says

“We realised that we had been, for better or worse, together as the RFPB longer than most of our other past bands had survived and it would be a good occasion to have a party. And if we can raise some money for a great cause then all the better We’re also well aware that many of the acts who have agreed to play have gone on to greater artistic and critical success than ourselves, so there is a large amount of hubris and ill-advised ego attached to headlining the event, but what the hell, it’s our party and we’ll headline if we want to!”

Profits from the day will go to the Scottish Association for Mental Health.

Tickets are onsale now through Brown paper tickets

Prior to the all day benefit, the RFPB hit the Scottish Highway to play shows in Dundee (Cerberus, 24th October) and Inverness (The Eagle Inn, 25th October).

” With clear shades of The Pogues, The La’s and Springsteen, they are clearly doing plenty right”


Dave Hughes and the RFPB are an amped up punk rock political folk band from Glasgow, not that dissimiliar to the Dropkick Murphies, The Levellers and The Clash. They have toured all over the UK including high profile shows at the Barrowlands, King Tuts, 2000 Trees Festival, Rebellion Festival and Guilfest. Dave has carried out successful solo tours of the Netherlands, Germany and East Coast of the USA.
