A big weekend of live music is ready to rock the Ridge!
Local watering holes are flooded with great acts, and the second installment of the neighbourhood’s favorite street party will coax a crew of crooners out to serenade crowds.
In case you missed it last week, the Summer Stroll on Third Avenue is back between 69th and 80th streets on July 25. It is your last chance to sample the best the 11-block stretch of the avenue has to offer from the best seat in the house — the middle of the street. Between live music, a scavenger hunt, and specials at local shops, you can’t go wrong spending your Friday evening on the avenue.
On the musical side of the street, Frankie Marra will play a solo acoustic set at Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets), Kings County Ramblers are set to belt out roots American music at Yellow Hook Grille (7003 Third Ave. at Ovington Avenue), comedic hip-hoppers Lord of the Fjords are pouring it on thick at the Pour House (7901 Third Ave. at 79th Street), and guitar-slinger Paul Cassone will croon for crowds at the Salty Dog (7509 Third Ave. at Bay Ridge Parkway).
If you’re trying to please a finicky crew of friends on Saturday night, catch Burlap to Cashmere at the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. at 95th Street). The genre-bending five-piece simultaneously channels Latin jazz, songwriter Paul Simon, and gypsy guitar god Django Reinhart — which pretty much covers the bases of cool. If that sounds like your bag, the music starts at 11 pm.
And the music doesn’t stop when the weekend does! On Tuesday, Blues Circus will play improvisational blues-rock at 79th Street and Shore Road as part of State Sen. Marty Golden’s Concerts in the Park series. The concert is free and open to the public — just bring something to sit on. The band plugs in at 7 pm.
