Gig guide shows it’s going to be a hot weekend in and out

THIS weekend starts with a surefire crowd favourite on Friday night.

The Zimmermen are six passionate men and women - Hammond organ, electric violin and harmonica included - who play a tiny fraction of Bob Dylan's 600 original tunes.

From the rocking bass line in Wheels on Fire to the cheeky lyrics of Ballad of a Thin Man, The Zimmermen have it covered.

Also on Friday, Pacha Mamma ply their trademark style at the Sawtell Hotel before heading to the Bellingen Community Markets the next day.

Then on Saturday night the Plantation Hotel features one of the mainstays of dance music in Australia.

Kid Kenobi brings his trademark dance floor-rocking style to the decks in a show that will have everyone in the party mood.

If he can't get your arms in the air and your feet moving then no-one can.

It's going to be a hot weekend inside and out.
