'90s nostalgia, topnotch country, primo hip-hop and traditional bluegrass
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.
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.
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.
Mr. Al Pete & LRK Chronicle – Friday, Jul 29
Justice Pub | Downtown Jacksonville
Two of the Duval hip-hop scene’s enduring standouts, LRK Chronicle and Mr. Al Pete, perform songs from their ever-growing catalogs, including tunes from a new collaborative EP called Simple As That, at Justice Pub on Friday.
Remedy Tree – Saturday, July 30
Blue Jay Listening Room | Jacksonville Beach
Primo St. Augustine pickers Remedy Tree are staking their place among Northeast Florida’s long tradition of bluegrass musicians (the popular “Orange Blossom Special” was written about a train from Orlando to Jax). The group performs on Saturday at Blue Jay Listening Room.
