Welcome to the 379th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second of June. The winner will receive an MP3 download codes 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: These jams were so much better than the local football team, they decided to up and move to Maryland.
Answer: Congratulations to first-time winner @perpg! Making quick work of the hint, they correctly identified these two jams from The Agora Theatre in Cleveland as the 5/7/92 Possum (this clip courtesy of fellow MJM emeritus @schvice) and the drum and bass section of the 4/22/93 YEM. A tougher-than-usual win for a first timer, @perpg is well-situated to tackle their seven wins and join the MJM HOF. Stick around next week, where we ratchet up the intensity of our puzzles yet another notch!
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.
