Welcome to the 279th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate of June. 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 all three mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess – 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!
Historical note: It's not often the MJM falls on a day in Phish history with 10 setlists to look back on – there are some all timers in there for sure. Anyone get an early start so they can hear all twenty sets (8 x 2 sets, 1 x 1 set, 1 x 3 sets) today? Hope everyone had a nice Father's Day!
Answer: Congrats to @jimsleftear on his second win and code – while he's a relatively new MJM player, he's no n00b, so don't be surprised to see him rack up a few more wins before year's end. This week he quickly identified ('quickly' is serious understatement: he nailed three clips in 65 minutes!) the 6/19/94 Reba (see historical note above), the 11/11/98 Halley's Comet, and the 8/11/93 Mike's Song – three jams played in the state of Michigan – without falling into the 6/19 trap I had laid. MJM280 is going to be a toughie, tune in Monday if you're up for the challenge!
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.
