Outdoor concerts are singing in three-part harmony in Bay Ridge this weekend. You’ve got a trio of chances to catch some music in Shore Road Park, and if fresh air and sunshine aren’t your bag, there’s plenty going on in the neighborhood watering holes.
Have it your way on Friday, when Maru Carmosino plays songs from the American Songbook at the Shore Road Park Gazebo (90th Street and Shore Road) at 7 pm. Expect traditional jazz and show tunes from greats like George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Jerome Kern.
Then skip over to Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets) at 9 pm to catch blue-some two-some Full Disclosure.
On Saturday, gambol back to the Gazebo for pop song-writer Vincent Merola at 5 pm. If his dulcet tunes don’t get you misty, the weather might — so bring an umbrella, because the chance of rain is 50–50.
By now you’ve probably had enough ivory tickling for a year, so we’re throwing you a bone. After Merola wraps up, sail over to No Quarter (8015 Fifth Ave. between 80th and 81st streets) to catch the aptly named Quartet of Catastrophe.
Then, double down and make a pilgrimage to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) to catch Garden State rockers Johnny Drama at 11 pm.
Indulge your cultured side on Sunday, and check out Brooklyn Writers Space’s poetry workshop at the Narrows Botanical Garden (7001 Shore Rd at 70th Street) at 3 pm.
Then complete your weekend piano trifecta on Sunday — take a walk south and catch classical pianist Gregory Post at the Gazebo at 6 pm.
