Greet the heat in Bay Ridge

Brooklyn Daily

The weather is finally thawing out, and the forecast is for good times in Bay Ridge this weekend.

If you have got a pounding headache from your stressful nine–to–five, we have got just the prescription for you — the soft, original acoustic sounds of Tony Travis & Friends. Travis will be bringing his soothing singer-songwriter stylings to Circles Cafe [310 69th St. at Third Ave.] at 8 pm. Or perhaps you are in the mood for a throwback to simpler times. You can relive the British Invasion at the Greenhouse Cafe [7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets] at 9 pm, with the London Fogg — bringing back all the hits from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield, the Dave Clark Five, and many more.

But maybe you like your oldies in a more compact and eclectic form. In that case, head on up to Pipin’s Pub [9701 Third Ave. at 97th Street] at 9 pm to hear the Alive N’ Kickin’ Duo perform your favorite ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s classics mixed up with a healthy dose of Latin and dance.

On Saturday, swing by the Three Jolly Pigeons [6802 Third Ave. at 68th Street] at 9 pm for a few hours with Six Thousand Days, a classic rock and soul cover outfit. Or, if you really want to rock, hit up No Quarter [8015 Fifth Ave. between 80th and 81st streets] to hear the Social Zoo. The band will be blasting heavy classics from the late ”60s through the grunge era starting at 10 pm.

If you would prefer to loosen up and have some soulful fun, you are in luck, because Maybe Monday is back at Kelly’s Tavern [9259 Fourth Ave. between 93rd and 94th streets], where the band will be playing its repertoire of Stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, and Aretha Franklin numbers, spiked with covers Top 40 hits by the likes of Adele and Kelly Clarkson. The show starts at 10 pm.

To cap off the weekend, hit the the Wicked Monk [9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets] at 11 pm, when Hello Brooklyn will be blasting out the latest hip-hop, pop, and rock hits.
