This weekend in Bay Ridge will be music to your ears!

On Saturday, cruise over to Red, White, and Brew (8910 Fifth Ave. between 89th and 90th streets) to fill your afternoon with British rock hits: the septet London Fogg will play its beloved repertoire tunes from across the pond by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Animals, and more. The free four-hour set kicks off at 3:30 pm.

After the show, slow it down with some soulful melodies! Mosey over to Brooklyn Firefly (7003 Third Ave. at Ovington Avenue), where the Ken Simon Quartet will play a free two-hour jazz concert starting at 8:30 pm. The group will perform the songs of jazz legends including Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, and Charlie Parker.

And you can keep the music train rolling all night by homing in to the Three Jolly Pigeons (6802 Third Ave. at 68th Street) for the music of Full Disclosure, who will play three separate sets of classic and alternative rock, modern hits, Motown, and party music. The trio takes the stage at 10 pm.

On Sunday, sashay all the way to Gulf Coast (6901 Third Ave. at Bay Ridge Avenue) to hear crooner Martin McQuade serenade you with songs from composer Harold Arlen — whose creations include “(Somewhere) Over the Rainbow,” “Blues in the Night,” and “Accentuate the Positive” — beginning at 1:30 pm. Pianist Dan Druman will accompany McQuade for the free, three-hour show to celebrate Arlen’s 113th birthday.

Finally, close out your weekend of musical indulgence with one more concert. On Sunday night, set your blue suede shoes stepping over to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) to hear Tommy Anderson and Mary Ellen take on their favorite oldies of the Elvis generation at a free 6 pm show.
