Welcome to the 376th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the third of May. 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 two mystery clips. The 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 answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
Hint: If your search for the answer begins afloat upon the waves, you're barking up the wrong tree.
Answer: Congrats to... the Blog! For only the 24th time ever, the Blog has won the MJM. While @Phishdicks4 saw right through the hint and correctly identified the 7/2/98 "Runaway Jim," he missed the second clip: 7/31/97 "Runaway Jim." Come back on Monday when the difficulty ramps up another notch for MJM377, and we'll play for two LivePhish 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.
