UNDYING LUV: THE BUSHY MEMORIAL PARTY
9 p.m. Revolution. $10 minimum donation.

When longtime concert promoter Jeffry "Bushy" Hudnall died early this year, there was an outpouring of grief from the electronic music community. Even to an outsider, it was apparent how much Hudnall's life and work meant to so many people. Promoter Mike Brown was very close to Hudnall, so he's hosting a benefit to put a bench and plaque as a memorial to his late friend at the Belvedere Pavilion downtown.

"Many years ago this is where Bushy use to throw our Free Sunday parties," Brown said via email. "He loved the area, even got married there. After they cremated him, there was never a plot, or place to visit. Through all the lives he touched, I felt this was a great way to keep his spirit alive for everyone he touched and future generations of music lovers."

The cost for the memorial is $3,000, and the proceeds from this 18-and-older show, which will feature more than 20 DJs, will go toward the project. The $10 donation is a minimum, and includes a memorial button.
