Let the Ridge’s music carry you away!

The music will take you back in time this weekend!

On Friday night, dance on down to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) to hear Tommy Anderson and Mary Ellen serenade you with their favorite rock hits from the Elvis era. The free show kicks off at 8 pm.

Get your Saturday night groove on at the Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets), where the band Seventh Realm will make its debut at 9 pm. The quartet will play songs from the 1960s up through today at the free show.

And on Sunday, keep the good tunes rolling with a visit to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) at 5 pm. Two-man acoustic act Lords of the Fjords will play rock hits from the 1950s and beyond, starting at 5 pm. The show will set you back $15.

Rest up for a few evenings, because there is plenty to do on Thursday night. Start the evening with a visit to the Bookmark Shoppe (8415 Third Ave. between 84th and 85th streets), where music journalist James Campion will talk about his new book, “Accidentally Like a Martyr: The Tortured Art of Warren Zevon” at 7 pm. The tome reveals the origin behind 13 of the rocker’s top hits, including “Werewolves of London,” through interviews with the artist’s friends and colleagues.

After the talk, stroll up the avenue to Kitty Kiernans (9715 Third Ave. between 97th Street and Marine Avenue). The Irish pub hosts an free open mic night from 10 pm until 2 am, so you can take in the tunes along some Guinness, or join in and celebrate the legacy of the Excitable Boy, Warren Zevon — or any of the other artists you’ve heard this week.
