The eruption of Mt. St. Helens was on 5/18/80, not 6/12/80. So, did the Dead really play during the eruption?

My mistake. I guess there was a smaller eruption on that day.

June 12 '80 was the third eruption. Check out this amazing description:
http://vulcan.wr.usgs.gov/Volcanoes/MSH/May18/OnThisDay1980/Days/1980June12.html

"The third explosive eruption of Mount St. Helens occurred Thursday evening, June 12, 1980. It was preceded by a buildup of harmonic tremor similar to that which preceded the May 25th eruption. The tremor began at low levels about midday and increased in amplitude throughout the afternoon. A marked increase was noted at 7:05 p.m., and reports of an eruption cloud rising to an altitude of at least 13,000 feet were received 5 minutes later. Tremor dropped off in strength immediately after the eruptive pulse and fluctuated at moderate amplitudes for more than 2 hours.

This lull was temporary as a dramatic increase in tremor amplitude began at 9:11 p.m."

And when we all got out of the show... there was this strange STUFF coming out of the sky. Yea... an ash cloud. Very weird indeed... ;)

Stevo Devo (4/18/2014) - Yep, after the show was over all heading outside there was fine white / greyish ash on everything and in the air! That stuff stays around for a while, and also getting caught up in the eastward jet stream where they were getting readings in parts per billion (PPB) across the entire northern states in the US (to Maine) and lower parts of Canada! Nasty!!!
