Walk through gateway of awesomeness to gig guide

TONIGHT'S gateway to the awesomeness of the weekend is the Twilight Food Market at Park Beach Reserve - if you haven't already been, go check out the superb food stalls and picnic your way into the night from 5.30pm.  

Music is supplied by local flamenco-flavoured duo Miel Crudo (Spanish for raw honey - yum).   

If you feel like dancing after all that food, check out some boot-scootin' from award-winning Vanessa Lea and Road Train (pictured) at the Pier Hotel; across town check out Tin Sandwich (and possibly NSW's greatest lamb chops) at the Coramba Hotel.  

Saturday is obviously last-minute Christmas shopping day - check out the markets listed below, and may the force be with you - followed by the twin bass forces of G Wizard's Maximum Bass Tour at the Coffs Hotel and Lady Lauryn at the Plantation Hotel.  

Sunday is all about Will and the People at the Hoey - check out our interview.
