This weekend, you can make the music!
Start your Friday night by moseying down to the Coop (9504 Fourth Ave. at 95th Street) for its open mic night, sponsored by Liberty Church Bay Ridge. Singers can show off their pipes, and those who require an instrument can take advantage of the Coop’s keyboard, guitar, and cajon — a Peruvian box-shaped percussion instrument. The free show kicks off at 7 pm, but registration for musicians begins at 5 pm.
After the open mic night, head over to the Greenhouse Café (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) to hear rock, Motown, and ’80s favorites from Full Disclosure. The trio favors hits by the Pretenders, the Beatles, Guns N’ Roses, Queen, and more. The free set starts at 10 pm.
On Saturday afternoon, rock out for a good cause at the Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. between 67th and Senator streets). The saloon will hold a fund-raiser for Loren and Rita Nickloff, a former Ridge family who decamped to California and lost their home and car in the wildfires that swept the state last month. The event will feature a raffle with more than $1,400 in gift cards to local restaurants — including Cebu, Hunter’s Steak and Ale, the Greenhouse Café, Skinflints, and the Kettle Black — along with a silent auction featuring four tickets to a summer Taylor Swift concert. Plus, six-piece band Head and South will play Southern rock tunes, including those of the Doobie Brothers, Marshall Tucker, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It starts at 4 pm, and admission costs a $20 donation.
Then on Sunday, wind down your weekend with another open mic night, this time from the Bay Ridge Poets Society at the Owl’s Head (479 74th St. between Fourth and Fifth avenues). Performers need not be poets: prose writers and musicians are also welcome to show off their creations, while listeners sip from the bar’s selection of wines and craft beers. The microphone turns on at 7:30 pm.
