ATTENTION: This is the first week where we'll play by a new rule: only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint (and every first MJM of the month henceforth). If you have previously won an MJM and you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me – if no one has answered correctly by the time I'm ready to post the hint, the first correct answer submitted by PM will be awarded the win.
Welcome to the 268th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of April. 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 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, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
Update: I received a correct answer 29 minutes in from a previous MJM winner via PM – no need for other previous winners to PM their answers. Folks who haven't won the MJM before: the clock is ticking!
Answer: Congrats to @Bob_Loblaw, who, after dozens of wild guesses over the years, identified this week's 10/24/14 DWD – while I'd love to make a wise crack about "even a broken clock is right twice a day," considering I met the man in person at the same venue 9 months later, and given how quickly he won this week's MJM, I'm guessing he was at that fantastic Fall '14 Forum show too and knows that jam by heart. See you Monday for MJM269!
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.
