December 4: Art Walk takes place the first Wednesday of every month from 5 p.m. through 9 p.m. Walk through over 40 galleries, including UNF’s own MOCA (which is free during Art Walk), and enjoy live music by local artists at the Hemming Plaza. The event officially ends at 9 PM, but the night is still young, as they say. After the galleries close up shop head over to Burro Bar, and enjoy live music from Jacksonville’s own sun-bleached garage rock band Master Radical.

December 6: If you think Laser Floyd only exists in reruns of That 70’s Show you are dead wrong. MOSH in downtown Jacksonville will be playing Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here at 8 p.m., Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon at 9 p.m., and Pink Floyd: The Wall at 10 p.m. Laser lights, high-def images and digital sound will collide to create an unusual and memorable date night. The show is $5 per person.

December 8: X102.9’s The Big Ticket will take place at the Metropolitan Park from 11 a.m. through 10 p.m., and will include performances by Frank Turner, Manchester Orchestra, Stone Temple Pilots, Pepper, Dirty Heads and many more. Tickets cost $50.

December 9: If you’re looking for an interesting date night, “50 Shades! The Musical,” a raunchy parody of the book “50 Shades of Grey,” is coming to the Times Union Center for Performing Arts. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range from $27 through $62. The show has sold out shows in both New York and Chicago, and has received great reviews.

December 20: Looking for a reason to take a day trip down to St. Augustine? Slow Magic, an electronic music artist that conceals his identity behind his signature tribal mask, will be playing a show at Café 11, a small and intimate venue located right across the street from St. Augustine Beach. The show is only $8 in advance and begins at roughly 9 p.m.

December 20: The Golden Dragon Acrobats will be performing at the Florida Theatre. If the name Golden Dragon Acrobats doesn’t spark your curiosity, then watching a short YouTube clip of their unbelievable talent definitely will. The cost of the show ranges from $23 through $39 and begins at 7:30 p.m.
