Welcome to the 336th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the most difficult of July. 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 the four mystery clips, which are connected by a theme that needn't be part of the correct answer (but will certainly help!). Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, a hint will be posted. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Answer: Pencils down! For only the 23rd time in history, the Blog is victorious! This week, folks figured out that the hint was a picture of Bill Graham, alluding to Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, where Phish recently completed a two night run. But what folks didn't realize is that BGCA wasn't the site of the four clips, but rather, the four songs in the clips spelled out "BGCA": 11/19/96 "Bathtub Gin," 11/28/03 "Ghost," 7/29/15 "Chalk Dust Torture," and 7/7/99 "Also Sprach Zarathustra." Stay tuned for MJM337 on Monday, where we'll give away two codes.
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.
