An eager PAX of 14 gathered for another round of sweatin’ to “whatever Gnard Dogg comes up with” on a glorious post-Easter Monday morning.  Having never met a genre I didn’t like (save God-awful Beach Music), YHC decided to return to his twangy roots and throw a little southern-fried rock on the griddle.  Here’s what went down:
