The emo community is still recovering from the sudden passing of Jon Bunch [pictured], former vocalist for ’90s stalwarts Sense Field as well as later the frontman of Further Seems Forever. Now, folks are coming together for a massive benefit concert to raise money for Bunch’s 12-year-old son Jack. The Jon Bunch Memorial Concert will be an all-day, three-stage event taking place March 20 at the Yost Theatre in Santa Ana, California, and will be headlined by a reunited Sense Field featuring a slew of guest vocalists, among them Garrett Klahn of Texas Is The Reason, Kenny Vasoli of the Starting Line, Walter Schreifels of Quicksand and Zoli Teglas of Ignite.

Sense Field isn’t the only band reuniting, though: Texas Is The Reason, Knapsack, Longfellow and others will reconvene for this one-night-only event, and they will be joined by the Bronx, Gameface, Samiam, Strife, Death By Stereo and more. The currently confirmed lineup is below with more bands to be announced.

Tickets to the Jon Bunch Memorial Concert are $30 and are on sale now; if you can’t make it, consider donating to the Jon Bunch Memorial GoFundMe.
