MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 391

Welcome to the 391st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday - Happy Columbus Day (to those who still celebrate it - in the Bay Area we're way too woke for that). This puzzle comes straight from the mind of MJM HoFer @PhreePhish directly into your earholes: our (true) intent is all for your delight. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of both mystery clips. The clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Hint: You know how sometimes I give away the theme in the intro, but no one notices till after the fact? This is one of those times.

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 390

Welcome to the 390th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first second (technically) and easiest of October. The winner will receive two MP3 download codes courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net and our friend @garcia17, who has tossed his latest code back into the pool for a n00b double down delight this week. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. Good luck!

Hint: As of 1:40 PM PDT on Tuesday, one of the guesses has the correct song, but every guess is too late in the band's history.

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner, @Zands, who used the hint to quickly find the 11/17/94 "Also Sprach Zarathustra." Stay tuned next week for a double-double: animal style.

They're available in five sizes, and come in maroon, but limited quantity - we only ordered 25, so act soon.

LONG MAY THEY RUN, SEASON ONE: PHISH!

We wanted to make sure you’ve heard about Long May They Run, a new music documentary podcast series from C13Originals, hosted and written by Dean Budnick, editor of Relix (and a veteran Phish fan). The first season of the podcast is about Phish, which is appropriate, because the podcast’s intent is to discuss iconic touring bands who have had a lasting impact on music culture and the music industry. You can listen to the first several episodes of the podcast here on Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/LMTRPodcast.

And here is an audio preview clip of the next episode that debuts tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019, featuring Trey discussing the improvisational comedy communication concept of "Yes, and---":

RECAP OF TREY AT BOURBON & BEYOND: "THAT MUST BE THE 'BEYOND' PART"

Are you a huge Trey Anastasio Band fan or live in the Louisville, Kentucky area? If not, chances are you had no idea TAB played for an hour last night at the Bourbon & Beyond Festival. It’s possible it’s the most random date on Trey’s playing calendar this year. It was his first time performing in public in the three weeks since Dick’s, and his solo tour doesn’t begin for another three weeks either.

THE WIND CRIES MARY

While some nights of the Baker’s Dozen had unexpected twists and turns and surprising covers, there were probably two nights that had the most predictable songs performed for the theme of night: "Cinnamon Girl" on Cinnamon Night and a Jimi Hendrix song on Jimmies Night. You could definitely make an argument for “Powderfinger” on Powdered Night but let’s not digress....

STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER

Phish is no stranger to covering the Beatles. They famously covered The Beatles, (also known as “The White Album”) in 1994 to kick off their impressive Halloween history of having musical “costumes” and covering classic albums from the past, their own future, and even from the imaginary past of an obscure Scandinavian band. Subsequent to that fateful night in Glens Falls when the band performed all 30 songs off of the ninth studio album of the English rock band, several other Beatles covers have been performed....

Phish.Net Store Updates

Donut pattern watch strapThe Phish.net Store is evolving a bit. We recently added a static-cling version of the Mockingbird sticker, and before that a charcoal version of the "Helping Kids Make Music" shirts. Just days ago, we added "donut pattern" watch straps, in three sizes, donated to the Foundation and now available as a fundraiser for music education.

Meanwhile, as we look ahead and plan some new items, more than half of the current offerings (7 of 13 items) are half-price, including two collectible pins, two versions of the "couch tour" shirt, and an engraved lighter cover priced to move.

More than 40 volunteers are currently reviewing nearly 700 funding inquires to the Mockingbird Foundation, which makes this a doubly great time to pick up some schwag, fly your .net flag, and support music education. We appreciate your support!

EPILOGUE: IDLE HANDS AND DICK'S

[We'd like to thank regular blog contributor @paulj for contributing another insightful data visualization to the blog. ICYMI: his pre-Dick's piece. - ed.]

He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. -- Proverbs 10:4

Note #1: “Idle Days” is the number of days from the last pre-Dick’s show to the first night of Dick’s. In 2019, it was 47 days from Alpine N3 to Dick’s N1.

Note #2: The average three-night rating for 2019 is based on about 425 reviewers for each show. The value used in this graph (3.967) is likely to change a bit as more people provide a rating.

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 386

Welcome to the 386th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday Tuesday, the first and easiest of September. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday Thursday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

*Reminder: For the first MJM of each month, only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint. If you have never won an MJM, please answer as a blog comment below. If you have previously won an MJM, but you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me; once the hint has been posted, everyone should answer on the blog. If that's confusing to you, check out the handy decision tree that I threw together for you. If you're not sure if you've won before, check in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.

Answer: Congrats to @lysergic, who Looked Sharp Dominating this week's puzzle, taking home his very first MJM win in the process. I can't recall any other jamming in the section before the "pause" besides this week's jam - 8/17/93 "Divided Sky" - but I'm sure someone will jump in the comments to correct me on that one. MJM387 drops Monday.
