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.

Alt-Rock

Incubus, Sublime with Rome – Tuesday, July 26

Daily’s Place | Downtown Jacksonville

A pair of ‘90s faves, alt-rockers Incubus and punky-reggae act Sublime (With Rome), bring a heavy dose of Gen-X nostalgia to Daily’s Place on Tuesday.

Country

Ward Davis – Thursday, July 28

1904 Music Hall | Downtown Jacksonville

With a long-list of songs written for some of the biggest names in country, singer-songwriter Ward Davis has made a name for himself in Nashville — quite an accomplishment in a place where the pizza delivery person is just as likely to be a musical prodigy. Davis plays 1904 on Thursday.
