Welcome to the 252nd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second MJM of December. The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the TWO mystery jam clips, and what these two versions share in common. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck! Also thanks yet again to @ucpete for letting me sit in for him, big shoes to fill!

Answer: Congratulations to @FunkyCFunkyDo and @andrewrose, who share in this week's victory, the 4th MJM victory for each. In a unique and unexpected sitution, we had @FunkyCFunkyDo as the first to correctly identify the two tracks: the Ghost from 2/26/03 and the Boogie On Reggae Woman from 6/7/12. Meanwhile, @andrewrose was right on @FunkyCFunkyDo's heels in identifying the tracks, but he was the first to correctly identify the theme: the venue formerly known as the Worcester Centrum, now known as the DCU Center. It was a sticky situation - the theme proposed by @FunkyCFunkyDo is very close and works as a unifying theme. However for reasons I won't go into, I specifically had the Centrum/DCU Center in mind as the theme. Therefore, they are both right. I would like to thank both winners for their amenable and good-natured spirit in sharing this week's win. It really is a nice community when ambitious MJM Emeritus seekers can put aside legitimate claims of victory, and agree to share the spotlight as co-winners. Thanks guys - I'll have to come up with some cool way to thank you for your sense of fair play. Tune in next Monday when @ucpete takes the difficulty level up several notches with MJM 253.

MiguelSanchez Not being able to spot that first jam is driving me absolutely crazy.

andrewrose Dagnabit. I had the 2/26 Ghost straight away but couldn't quite place the Boogie quick enough. I was at both these show. For shame.

2/26/03 Ghost
6/7/12 Boogie On

I would add this however, as commonalities run deeper. Both shows at Worcester Centrum/DCU that feature a first set Moma, second set Ghost, and encore with Loving Cup.

TwiceBitten 6/7/12 was my "back on the train" show. Life has been a lot phishier ever since

mcgrupp81 2/26/03 was a good show. My friend stood out in the cold in the lot with many others trying to get a ticket but to no avail. We did go to the 2/28 show so that certainly made up for it. Nice avatar @Funkycfunkydo It's my favorite Simpsons episode.
