Best Concerts in South Florida This Week | New Times Broward-Palm Beach


South Florida's Eight Best Concerts This Week

Following her "Intuition" led Jewel to singing alongside country darling Dolly Parton on the track "My Father's Daughter" off her latest album, Picking Up the Pieces. Now, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter — who just so happens to be a New York Times best-selling author — will be serenading all her South Florida fans as she takes over the Parker Playhouse. Just be sure to leave your "Foolish Games" at the door.

With JD and the Straight Shot. Thursday, March 10, 8 p.m. Parker Playhouse, 707 NE Eighth St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-761-5374; Tickets cost $37.50 to $67.50 plus fees via

The Jacuzzi Boys
Jacuzzi Boys — as pointed out by our sister paper, the Miami New Times — "may have become just as synonymous with the Magic City as Cuban sandwiches and hypodermic needles," but the 305-bred trio is escaping the Miami "Sun" and heading over to Fort Lauderdale for its first-ever gig at Rhythm & Vine. 

Thursday, March 10, 10 p.m. Rhythm & Vine Beer Garden, 401 NE Fifth Terrace, Fort Lauderdale; 954-533-3734; Admission is free.

AC/DC's Rock or Bust World Tour
From traveling the "Highway to Hell" in Sydney, Australia, to smashing guitars at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, AC/DC is "Back in Black." So get ready to be shaken all night long as the Aussies bring their Rock or Bust World Tour to the 954. 

Friday, March 11, 8 p.m. BB&T Center, 1 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise; 954-835-8000; Tickets cost $70.75 to $125.25 plus fees via

AC/DC's March 11 show, in addition to nine upcoming dates, is being rescheduled. AC/DC’s lead singer, Brian Johnson, has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.  

Donavon Frankenreiter
"I've learned a lot through all my surfing experiences," Donavon Frankenreiter told New Times back in 2013. "I really learned how to play music through bringing my guitar on all my surf travels. The first song I ever wrote was 'Free.' That was about being on the water and being close to the beach, for sure." Guess that must be why the professional surfer and musician is playing two back-to-back shows at Culture Room in Fort Lawdy.

With JL Fulks on Friday, March 11, and SOSOS on Saturday, March 12, 8 p.m. Culture Room, 3045 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale; 954-564-1074; Tickets cost $20 via
