Sometimes you just need a little headbangin’ to clear away the cobwebs.

And yeah, I suppose that I could have waited for AC/DC on Sunday night. But sometimes when ya gotta go, ya just gotta go. So my old pal Snayle roared into town, picked me up late Saturday afternoon, and we headed off to the Edgefest blast at the Altamont Fairgrounds.
