The Ridge is really rocking this weekend. Punk, classic rock, and … opera? That is right! It is all waiting for you in Bay Ridge.

On Friday, Philadelphia punks Still Standing will play Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), and we are all hoping they leave the venerable Ridge eatery standing when they’re done. The house starts rocking at 9 pm.

Take some time on Saturday to pay your respects to the Boss. Bruce Springsteen tribute act Saints in the City will relive Bruce’s glory days at Lief Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets) at 9:30 pm.

But if you’re not a fan of the giant from Jersey, head over to Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets) where Brooklyn classic rockers Bad Sign will be playing for Rocktoberfest at 10 pm.

Then make up for your weekend of debauch on Sunday and check out the “Regina Pops” concert at Our Lady of Perpetual Help school auditorium (5902 Sixth Ave. at 59th Street). Regina Opera soloists will belt out opera and Broadway favorites starting at 3 pm. Tickets cost $12.

But the fat lady has not sung! If you miss Regina’s show on Sunday, you will have a second chance to check it out Tuesday evening during a free concert at the Dyker Library (8202 13th Ave. between 82nd and 83rd streets). The vocal chords start vibrating at 6:30 pm.
