one of our fp girls (who also went to bonnaroo with us) is currently on vacation following phish around to some of their east coast shows – she sent along some photos for the blog and i’m so jealous. wish i was there…
the ends in sequins dress is a summer concert and festival favorite!
i know its not the easiest to see, but the girl on the left’s hat is rad – check out the pattern on the underside of the brim.
phish will be in camden (just over the bridge from philly) this thursday and friday and a couple of our fp girls are going – will YOU be there??
anyone heading to the telluride bluegrass festival this weekend? i wish i was…there are a couple of bands playing that i really like, and it looks so beautiful and relaxing there – it definitely seems to draw a really laid back, hippie crowd. colorado is one of the few states in the US i’ve never been to, and i really want to change that very soon…
among the bands playing are alison krauss, yonder mountain string band, bela fleck, edward sharpe and mumford and sons!
there are some really cool old school photos on the website too.
