The Snowpocalypse is over!

Everyone likes a good excuse to stay in and watch Netflix all weekend, but now it is time to get back out there and light up the town. There is plenty going on this weekend, so lace up those boots and hit the streets!

Make the long, strange trip up to the Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave., between 67th and Senator streets) on Friday night for psychedelic tribute band Tiberius, playing two fully electric sets starting at 10 pm. They promise to play “the best of everything,” including Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones.

After your psychedelic trip at Leif Bar, you may yearn for some soothing tunes to get you through Saturday afternoon. So take a bracing volksmarch to the Church of the Good Shepherd (7420 Fourth Ave., between 74th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway) for a dose of some Johannes Brahms. The Park Slope Singers and two pianists will play the German composer’s choral masterwork “A German Requiem” at 3 pm. Tickets are $15.

Then get in on the rock ’n’ roll social experiment that is the Social Zoo, playing at No Quarter Tavern (8015 Fifth Ave., between 80th and 81st streets) at 10 pm on Saturday. The quintet has opened its set-list to the Internet masses, so if you have requests, log them in at the group’s website: there is only one place for Bay Ridgites to be on Sunday — at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) for a jam-packed benefit show for the family of in-house chef Russell Titland. The Monk’s maestro spatula-slinger lost his battle with cancer earlier this month and the pub is raising money to help his family through donations, raffles, and an auction. The show starts at 3 pm, and four awesome acts — John Rafferty, the Canny Brothers Band, the Head and South Band, and Radio Daze — have lined up for the show. And while you empty your wallet to help your fellow man, you can also fill your belly — there is a free buffet for everyone who shows up.
