Jan. 25: Lemuria
You can head to Comet Ping Pong in Northwest tomorrow night to see Lemuria before the indie pop-punk group heads out of the country for its tour of Australia and Southeast Asia. The band’s 2013 album The Distance Is So Big presents an energetic blend of pop, rock and punk melodies with upbeat guitar riffs and floaty vocals. Passing Phases and D.C. punk band Aloners will also perform in the concert, which starts at 10:30.

Israeli-born cellist Matt Haimovitz will perform all six of Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello tomorrow at Georgetown’s Historic Dumbarton Church. The work will be presented in two performances, with Haimovitz playing the first three suites at 4 p.m. He will return to complete the set in a second concert at 8 p.m.
