Bay Ridge cranks it up to 11

Break out your ear plugs — it’s gonna get loud!

Bay Ridge watering holes will be flooded with local talent this weekend, but we waded through the torrent to bring you the best:

On Friday, ease into your weekend shenanigans with Full Disclosure at the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) for a wild night of debauchery that pairs as a birthday bash. In honor of songstress Catherine Lau Hunt’s name day, the band will play some of her favorites including covers of AC/DC, Queen, and Led Zeppelin. This shindig is sure to bring the house down — the greenhouse that is — so don’t miss a beat starting at 10 pm.

Come Saturday, start your night early at 4:30 with classic rockers The Groove at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets). Go all the way with $40 all-you-can-drink beer, wine, and well drinks or in honor of the good ol’ American rock ’n’ roll you’ll be enjoying go for the $20 bucket of domestic brews.

Then fly over to the Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue) for a rollicking — or should we say rocking — good time Saturday night. Enjoy a dynamic line up of eclectic groups including the self-described surf-punk cover band Band of Others, acoustic folk guitarist James Parenti, and the original rock riffs of Jared Mancuso and the Very Pleasant People. The amps turn up at 9 pm.

Cap the night off with a pilgrimage over to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) for some late-night hip-hop jams by 3 am Tokyo. The set starts at a contrary 11 pm, but once you make head way on the gastropub’s impressive beer list, you’ll be lucky if you’re still standing by 3 am.
