Welcome to the 289th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the hardest and most difficult of August, which I randomly decided would be the easiest MJM month this year. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery clip. 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!

Answer: Congrats to @stillwaitin, who no longer has to wait for another LivePhish code after winnig his or her second MJM (and first in more than two years). After seeing Trey wearing the ice hockey uniform of the Philadelphia Flyers, who played at The Spectrum for many years, @stillwaitin correctly identified the 12/15/95 "It's Ice" (played at The Spectrum). Come back Monday when we keep it easy for MJM290.

drshaws This is not my guess. But man, does Gordo have a 73-74, John Wetton-esque, super dark King Crimson tone going on or what (3-15 seconds or so)? Fantastic.

TwiceBitten so are all mystery jams just ambient zones now? haha. I think I heard two notes of the Rite of Spring... that's not my guess.

MiguelSanchez No time to dig deep, so let's just toss the 12/29/96 Bowie out there.

Ouish I haven't played in while, but with that hint, I'll take a guess.

The_Blob Sounds like 12/15/95 It's Ice
, comment by Your_Intense_Delight
Your_Intense_Delight 12/15/95 It's Ice is right. Based on the hint, the Spectrum is another venue they played in Canada right down the street from Molson Amphitheater (Molson is on the jersey sleeve)
