Welcome to the 295th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second and second-easiest of October. 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 both mystery clips, which are connected by a theme. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, 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. Good luck!
Hint: It's interesting to hear spacey jams from the same song back-to-back, especially between versions close to two decades apart. I wonder if the ability to buy cannabis near both these venues before the shows had anything to do with the far-out nature of the jams...
Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @negativeseven, who beat out @wforwumbo (and @FunkyCFunkyDo, who was also closing in on the answer post-hint) just in time to win their first MJM – nice work! This week, we took a look at wacked out DWD jams, >19 years apart: 9/3/17 "Down with Disease" and 7/1/98 "Down with Disease," played at the most recent Phish show at Dick's, and the autonomous anarchist district Christiania, respectively. I've visited both places and they're both cool in their own weird ways. Stay tuned next week when we step up into even tougher territory with MJM296...
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.
