MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND Plays “Albatross, Albatross, Albatross” At the Actual Mt St. Helens

Earlier this month MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND performed at the actual Mount St. Helens for a special benefit concert in advance of the 30th anniversary of the volcano’s eruption. The band toured the Mount St. Helens Monument before they performed at the Johnston Ridge Observatory atop the volcano. Below is a video of “Albatross, Albatross, Albatross” from the show, which landed a spot as KEXP’s video of the week. More about the show is available at the KEXP blog HERE.

MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND To Play Mount St. Helens Aug. 15

Such an event surely was written in the stars. MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND will host a special benefit concert on August 15 at the Mount St. Helens Institute, the non-profit arm of Mount St. Helens Monument (a US Forestry site). Dollars raised at this event will go to build new exhibits within the various public observatories at the Mount St. Helens Monument, in advance of the 30th anniversary of the volcano’s eruption. As part of these pre-anniversary festivities, MSHVB will be guided by the Mount St. Helens Monument’s leading scientists to various sites throughout the monument, such as the pumice fields, and Mount St. Helens southern ridge, which was blown-off during the historic eruption. This event also marks the first time a band has ever played a volcano in the continental United States.

The concert, at Mount St. Helens’ Johnston Ridge Observatory will support development of the “Taking the Pulse of an Active Volcano” exhibit at Mount St. Helens. The event will begin with a presentation by Dr. John Bishop, a published Mount St. Helens researcher, who will discuss the changing landscape since the 1980 eruption. Tickets for this uber-special occasion are available online HERE.
