Last week marked the return of St. Augustine’s Sing Out Loud Festival. The month-long fest features more than 100 performances, including big-time headliners and dozens of local acts. 

There’s more to check out in St. Johns County. You can read about all of our SOL staff picks here. There’s also plenty of music in Duval this week. Here are our recommendations.

Jax-based trio Mercy Mercy, standard bearers for the city’s current garage scene, opens the show. Doors at 7 p.m.
