The barroom rock of Bay Ridge is flashing back to the 1960s this weekend!

You can party with tunes from the Age of Aquarius with classic rock bands, an energetic musical mash-up group playing songs from all eras, and a band of hard-partying geezers that will have you cutting loose — come Monday it will all be a blissful, boozy blur.

On Friday, get the party started with Geezer at the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets). This trio of Brooklynites have been partying together since 1963 and show no signs of slowing down. You can trip onto the dance floor to covers of psychedelic hits from the likes of Jefferson Airplane, the Kinks, and Janis Joplin once the old-school band takes the stage at 10 pm.

Once you have partied Friday into Saturday, take a nice, long sleep and then roll out of bed at 4 pm for local rockers Cherry Bomb at Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets), where a wealth of drink specials will have you swimming in good times. Here at Bay Ridge Nights we are partial to the $20 bucket of domestic beer, but if you feel a bit more highbrow, go for the $5 sangria or margarita. Bottoms up!

At 11 pm meander over to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) for some good noise from six-piece band Good Noise. This group has been together since high school, and play modern day jams, crooner classics, and boomer rock from yesteryear. The band describes its genre as “literally everything” and the group prides itself on being more of an experience than a musical act — so you may find yourself on the stage, having the experience of belting out a classic tune alongside the lead singer.
