Holiday tunes and hard rock are waiting for you in Bay Ridge — think of it as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra without all the pomp and fog.

First, get into the Christmas spirit by caroling up Third Avenue with Bay Ridge Cares. The chorus will spread cheer from 84th to 92nd streets and is meeting at the BookMark Shoppe (8415 Third Ave. beween 84th and 85th streets) at 6:30 pm.

After you’ve warmed your voice (and some hearts), go sing along to some different tunes with Brooklyn rockers Pete Wire at the Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets). Catch the all-original, pan-genre band’s odes to Bushwick, Coney Island, and Brooklyn poet Walt Whitman at 9 pm.

Then, tear over to Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) to catch garage-and-brit-pop rockers the Windsor Terrors at 10 pm.

On Saturday, relive the glory days of rock ’n’ roll with classic rock revivalists Steppin’ Back at the Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Ave. between 73rd and 74th streets). The strum down memory lane starts at 9:30 pm.

After you’ve had your fill of the classics, step forward (just a bit) to the 1990s and check out grunge-y hard rockers the Social Zoo at Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue) at 10 pm.

And Wednesday is your lucky day — grab your shillelagh and trot to Pipin’s Pub (9701 Third Ave. between 97th and 98th streets) to catch Irish balladeers the Brooklyn Bards at 7 pm.
