Itching to experience some live music after the 56th Annual Grammy Awards last night? These NoVa venues have you covered, with performances in many different genres lined up for this week.

Tonight at 7:30, Cheap Trick’s lead singer Robin Zander will be performing an acoustic set at the Birchmere in Alexandria. Tickets are $35 and are available here.

The Birchmere Music Hall, 3701 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria.

Also tonight, Ladysmith Black Mambazo will be playing some of its a capella South African music at 8 p.m. at The Barns at Wolf Trap. This show is a great opportunity to get to know a Grammy winner—the group took home the award for “Best World Music Album” last night for their album “Singing for Peace Around the World.” Tickets begin at $40 and are available here.

On Wednesday, former teen heartthrob Teddy Geiger will be playing at Jammin Java in Vienna. You might remember him as Emma Stone’s love interest in “The Rocker,” and you’ll almost certainly recognize his hit “For You I Will.” Tickets are $12 and include a pre-show meet-and-greet with Teddy if you buy three or more tickets by Jan. 28. Get tickets here.
