This week, Bay Ridge is going to, like, take a chill pill.

On Saturday, flashdance back to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) for a free dose of 1980s rock from Cherry Bomb. The band favors totally tubular tunes from Blondie, Joan Jett, and Guns ’N’ Roses, and will kick off its four-hour set at 3:30 pm.

And the ’80s jams will keep rolling even after the band stops. Put on your red shoes and dance your way down to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) to hear more party hits from the Reagan era, when Radio Daze hits the stage at 10 pm. The show — which will feature the songs of Flock of Seagulls, Prince, and Mötley Crüe, among others — will set you back a gnarly $7.

On Monday, make like Ferris Bueller and play hooky! Use your free day to wander to the Bay Ridge Library (7223 Ridge Blvd. at 73rd Street) and catch a free mid-day screening of “The Darkest Hour,” which features Oscar-winning Gary Oldman as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as he confronts Adolf Hitler’s rising power. Hint: he doesn’t say “Danke schoen!” The two-hour flick starts at 1:30 pm.

And on Wednesday, after an exhausting two days of work, take a mid-week break by grabbing dinner and belting out more of your favorite ’80s tunes at the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets). Beloved host DJ Dave will host his epic free karaoke night, with more than 25,000 classic pop songs on offer starting at 8 pm.
