MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 423

Welcome to the 423rd edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final MJM of June. This week's puzzle is brought to you by MJM Hall of Famer @PhreePhish. 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 both mystery clips. 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!

Answer: Congrats to @ChemistryChris on his fourth MJM win, this time pushing him across the halfway mark to Emeritus status and a seat in the MJM HoF! As pointed out in the comments, these two jams were a nod to Neil Peart (RIP), with the clips being two Phish jams featuring Rush teases: 8/5/11 "Rock & Roll" and 8/21/87 "David Bowie." Check the jams out - both amazing, nearly 25 years apart. MJM424 is live up-page, go get it!

PhreePhish Pretty fast there!

RIP Neil Peart

Anyone else notice that the world has kinda gone to hell ever since he died in January?

Just sayin'

RIP Neil Peart indeed.

As a former drummer, I am required by law to be a fan of Rush in general and By-Tor in particular. Short work from that point on.

mcgrupp81 Love it when 80s Phish makes it into MJM. Classic show. I can picture my friend's "Ian's Farm" tapes now. I went into my Phish Companion book (Thanks Mockingbird) and saw that this show was the first to have the Mcgrupp lyrics sung rather than narrated. The more you know! Side note, love the ChemistryChris avatar. Another side note. Saw that Broadway is shut down through December, so I am assuming that kills any long shot at an MSG NYE run. I would certainly pay for even a NYE, Summer, Fall, whatever "run" where all the boys were doing was webcasting them doing soundcheck jams in some remote location. Better yet would be a Willy Wonka style contest where a select few get to be in attendance. I want my Mike's Song second jam and I want it now daddy!

May not be Phish-related but I'm going to nominate @sumac22 for best avatar I've seen.
