Each week the JME team looks long and hard at the concert calendar to identify the best live music in Jacksonville. Our weekly Go concert recommendations are updated every Monday morning and are always available on jaxmusic.org.

For the comprehensive list of this week’s concerts, go to our live music calendar page.


Paramore – Wednesday, November 16

The Amp | St. Augustine

While putting rock and star together may be oxymoronic in 2022, Tennessee-bred rock band Paramore, perhaps against the grain of contemporary musical leanings, remains one of the most popular touring acts in the world. These unimpeachable stars of rock perform at The Amp on Wednesday.

Kirk Franklin – Thursday, November 17

VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena | Downtown Jacksonville

Since “Stomp”-ing into popular music with God’s Property in 1997, gospel singer-songwriter and choir director Kirk Franklin has proved himself the most engaging and enduring faith-based acts in American music. Franklin and Maverick City Music play the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena on Thursday.

Bobby Kid – Thursday, November 17 

The Walrus | Murray Hill 

Since coming on to the Jacksonville indie-music scene with the jangly, introspective 2018 EP Peach, locals Bobby Kid have continued to add to their increasingly dynamic catalog, and remain a must-see live act. Bobby Kid plays with Philadelphia and Cicalia at Murray Hill’s The Walrus on Thursday.
