At the end of May a few friends and I headed to Stategbridge for the Beanstalk Festival.Statebridge is a hidden gem, just north of Vail nestled in the mountains next to the Colorado River. Saturday nights headliner was Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. These guys put on an amazing show and I assure you this is just another Grateful Dead cover band. Joe Russo is a phenomenal drummer who is front and center and leads the band in their interpretation of The Dead’s music. We camped up the hill at a new spot and enjoyed a cheese plate before the show. The moon light through the clouds was beautiful during the show. The clouds broke way around 2am just in time for some long exposures.
