Welcome to the 266th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate and second-hardest of March. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the three mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. 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!

Note: Congrats to the Select Sixteen Plus Two who advanced in the MMJM Tournament, whose names I have announced on the Round 1 post – Round 2 will begin on Thursday; keep an eye on the blog and your emails.

Answer: Congrats to @TwiceBitten who knocked this week's curveball over the wall on the first pitch, earning his third MJM win overall by identifying three clips from band members' birthdays: 9/30/00 Timber (Trey), 5/17/92 Hood (Page), and 6/3/11 Bowie (Mike). Fishman didn't get a slot because 2/19/91 and 2/19/93 didn't have any good MJM candidates. Special thanks to Bill (@psuphan) who thought this could make a cool theme, told me about it instead of keeping it to himself, and was so stoked that I ended up using it that he decided to donate to the Mockingbird Foundation! MJM267 will drop Monday, but Round 2 of the MMJM Tournament will begin tomorrow during the day – I'll email the remaining participants today and put up a blog post ASAP.

Fishman was hatched from a chicken's egg under a toad, just like a basilisk.

TwiceBitten Fishman is 2/19. They played in 91 and 93 (roxy).

Believe it or not I got #1 and #3 very quickly but it took me forever to get #2. I listened to all the Fish and Page Bday shows and couldn't find it. I thought it might be a trick so I looked up CK5's birthday (7/26) and skipped through the jams of all of those with no avail. Then I remembered that they'd (accidentally?) wished him a happy birthday on 7/25 one year and I thought maybe the MJM team got it wrong. So I listened to a bunch of 7/25s...again with no avail. I was about to give up but then I remembered that there was some weird stuff in the 5/17/92 Possum, so I checked that luck. I just randomly decided to click on Harry Hood at the 8 minute mark as literally my last option before throwing up my hands and bingo...right on the money.
