Now you are stuffed full of Turkey Day cheer — and turkey — work off that stuffing by rocking out in the Ridge.

There is plenty of live music to sweat to this weekend, and with Thanksgiving out of the way, the neighborhood is already turning its sights to the rest of the holiday season.

On Friday, roll over to Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), where British Invasion mavens London Fogg will drape the cafe in a haze of Brit-Pop goodness starting at 9 pm.

On Saturday, celebrate the life and music of local a legend — the late Jerry Greaney — at the fourth annual Jerry Greaney Day Celebration at Lief Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets). The Head and South band is headlining with special guests, so you can bet you bottom dollar there will be some serious Southern rock going around. The tribute kicks off at 9 pm.

If you are stuck taking your visiting family out for the night, head to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) for party-pop tunesters Hot Date at 11 pm. The Long Island group plays dance, hip-hop, rock and country, so you have got all your bases covered if trying to please a fickle array of relatives.

Wednesday night is all about getting into the holiday spirit. The Owl’s Head Park Horticulture Group is lighting up a holiday tree in Owl’s Head Park (68th Street and Colonial Road) at 7:30 pm. There will be hot chocolate on tap and live music from the Guild for Exceptional Children Choir’s choir, as well as an appearance from Santa. The park’s super-secret new mascot will also be making his debut, according to a hot scoop from the event’s organizer.
