Luna Luna, Drive-By Truckers, Boyz II Men, Bon Iver and more
Each 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 every Monday morning and are always available on jaxmusic.org.
Here’s the rundown of what JME contributors want to see and hear in and around Jacksonville this week.
Drive-By Truckers – Tuesday, April 12
Ponte Vedra Concert Hall | Ponte Vedra
Ever-progressing carriers of the southern rock torch, alt-country quintet Drive-By Truckers have a flatbed’s worth of tour dates on the band’s 2022 itinerary, including a long-awaited return to St. Johns County’s Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
Luna Luna – Tuesday, April 12
Intuition Ale Works | Downtown Jacksonville
Texas-based Latinx four-piece Luna Luna brings its wildly infectious fusion of pop, rock, disco, hip-hop and latin rhythms to Intuition Ale Works on Tuesday night. Dent May and Pearl & the Oyster round out a bill of popular out-of-town indie acts.
Jax River Jams: Boyz II Men – Thursday, April 14
Riverfront Plaza | Downtown Jacksonville
With four Grammy Awards, tens-of-millions of records sold and an unmatched imprint on contemporary R&B, Boyz II Men could hang it up at any time. The group’s sultry, infectious ballads endure, as does the harmonious trio as a performing group. Boyz II Men headlines the second installment of this year’s Jax River Jams on Thursday with support from Duval hip-hop artist (and JME contributor) Mr. Al Pete.

Bon Iver plays the St. Augustine Amphitheatre with support from Dijon –– another artist breaking new ground with his singular sonic approach.
To Us Below – Sunday, April 17
Jack Rabbits | San Marco
A great and undeniably heavy lineup of metal acts is on tap for Jack Rabbits on Sunday, featuring Welcome To Chaos touring package To Us Below, WoR and Matriarchs, plus support from Jax metal lords The Noctambulant.
