Bay Ridge is jamming this week!
On Saturday, start your evening with a trip to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets), where you can get a pint and a free, four-hour set of classic British rock covers from London Fogg. The septet will start playing tunes from the Buckinghams, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones starting at 7:30 pm.
And if you ditch the Brits a little early, you can make party time at the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), where local trio Full Disclosure will throw a birthday bash for lead singer and guitarist Cathy Lau Hunt — complete with cake! The band will fill its free 10 pm show with pop and party hits by No Doubt, Guns ’n’ Roses, Bon Jovi, and more.
On Sunday, ring out the musical weekend by listening to the Whippoorwill trio play a mix of classic rock at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets). The free, in a free, four-hour set starts at 5 pm.
And you don’t have to stop the music once the workweek begins! On Monday night, walk the line to the Bookmark Shoppe (8415 Third Ave. between 84th and 85th streets), where author John Alexander will discuss and sign “The Man in Song: The Discography Biography of Johnny Cash,” which looks to Cash’s music in order to understand his legendary life. The free event starts at 7 pm, and you can buy the book for $36.95.
And on Wednesday, you can keep the tunes going at the Brooklyn Firefly (7003 Third Ave. at Ovington Avenue), where you can bring an instrument and jam with other local musicians from 7:30 pm to 10 pm.
