Welcome to the 282nd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, July's triple double (second MJM, second easiest, two clips). The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net – these codes have become even more precious since the change in policy on ticket codes. Despite the change, we still remain grateful to LivePhish.com for their continued support (financial and otherwise) of phish.net and the Mockingbird Foundation, and their continued willingness to let me give away 50+ download codes every year. To win this week's contest, be the first person to identify the song and date of both 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 to start – if no one guesses correctly in the first 24 hours, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, 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!
Hint: Only ten 3.0 jams fit the theme, but I had already used the "Tahoe Tweezer." I had the most options early in the 1.0 era – in fact, no 2.0 jams fit the theme.
Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @jkosoff, who figured out the hint and correctly identified the 8/27/88 "Golgi Apparatus" and the 11/22/92 "Tweezer" – both jams, like the "Tahoe Tweezer," preceded "Tela." Will we have another first-time winner, or will a grizzle vet take down next week's more difficult MJM? Tune in Monday for MJM283 to find out!
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
