It’s another weekend of marathon music in the Ridge!

Start your weekend off on the right foot by dancing on down to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) to hear the Rockinghams rock out. The quintet plays an eclectic mix of Motown, British and folk rock, and ’60s pop, with a laundry list of favored artists that includes James Brown, John Lennon, the Beach Boys, Louis Armstrong, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, and the Jackson Five. The free, four-hour set starts at 3:30 pm.

After you have gotten your fill of music from across the genres and decades, head over to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets), where you can fill up on a warm winter’s dinner of potato leek soup, lobster mac ’n’ cheese, or chicken pot pie before you listen to a late-night set of more music from across the ages by Kristen and the Noise. The five-person band, fronted by Kristen Kwolek, also favors a mix of rock, oldies, classics, hip-hop, and top ’40s pop. The show will set you back $15, and the quintet takes the stage at 11 pm.

On Sunday, work off the calories — and the headache — from Saturday night with a brisk morning walk along the shore to the American Veterans Memorial Pier (Shore Road at Bay Ridge Parkway), then cap off your visit with a hot cup of coffee or tea at the newly opened Pier 69 Market (10 Bay Ridge Ave. between Owl’s Head Court and Shore Road). The café serves a variety of drinks, bagels, and breakfast sandwiches. Doors open at 9 am.

Later that day, mosey on over to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), where Tommy Anderson and Mary Ellen will play a night of throwback oldies rock hits from the ’50s and ’60s by Elvis and the Righteous Brothers, among others. The free show kicks off at 6 pm.
