Every week, the JME team looks long and hard at the concert calendar to identify the best shows in Jacksonville. Our weekly Go recommendations are updated each Monday morning and are always available on jaxmusic.org.

This week, vintage-country aesthete Charley Crockett, indie-electronic-dance trio Joywave and beloved jam band Widespread Panic all visit the First Coast. Also this week, local singer-songwriter Cory Driscoll will celebrate a new album with a release show. And Beaches-based Patsy Cline tribute act Patsy’s Daydream plays the T-Dub’s Mercantile.

Here’s the rundown of what JME contributors want to see and hear in and around Jacksonville this week.
