Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band is going to the mountain.
Proceeds from the unusual event will benefit the Mount St. Helens Institute, the nonprofit arm of Mount St. Helens Monument, a U.S. Forestry site. Money raised will help build new exhibits at the various public observatories at the monument in advance of the 30th anniversary of the volcano’s eruption.
Tickets, $25, include entrance to the Johnston Ridge Observatory and other monument areas from 2 to 6 p.m., as well as a guest lecture by Dr. John Bishop. For an additional $10, visitors can take a six-mile, moderately difficult guided hike on the Boundary Trail to Harry’s Ridge. Advance registration is required. Information: 360-891-5107.

Here’s a video clip of the band last March at the South By Southwest music festival and conference in Austin, Texas.
