No blizzard will keep Bay Ridge from rocking out!

Even if the streets are packed with snow, the Bay Ridge bar circuit is packed with shows. So once you dig out your sidewalk, you should have no trouble finding something worth walking to.

You can start this weekend off slow or with a bang. For the former, head to the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) at 9 pm for a few pints and some acoustic rock covers from the Neighborhood Skells. For the latter, hit up Kelly’s Tavern (9255 Fourth Ave., between 93rd and 94th streets) at 9:30 pm, where the local cover band Love Button is reuniting for one night only.

The festivities start early on Saturday at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) where Identity Theft will play classic tunes by Jimi Hendrix, the Temptations, Bruce Springsteen, and more starting at 4 pm. Bring a guitar and tune up your voice — the band welcomes aspiring rockers who dare to hop on stage for a tune or two.

Identity Theft will pack it in at 8 pm, but your night is just starting! You have a few choices:

Head up Fifth Avenue to The Hideout (8415 Fifth Avenue between 84th and 85th streets) if you are in the mood for eclectic indie and punk tunes from a Candy Hearts-headed lineup. The show starts at 8 pm, the event’s Facebook page promises “no cover” and “no rules.”

If tasty licks and riffs are more your cup of liquor, head over to Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets) at 9 pm for blues standards and more from Tomcat and the Whiskey Rats.

Or you can catch Garden State cover rockers Johnny Drama at 11 pm at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets). And while you are there, raise a glass in honor of the Monk’s chef Russell Titland, who lost his battle with cancer on Jan. 14.
