Welcome to the 359th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the third of January – happy Martin Luther King Day! While our friend @wforwumbo tries to get out of this maze, I'll be at the helm yet again bringing you the chronniest of gnargnar jams with a little help from my fellow MJM Hall of Famers. This week, our clips were selected by the 19th MJMer to enter the Hall of Fame, @justino – thanks for the twisted puzzle! 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 the three 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: I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday yesterday – catch any shows on your day off? [answers accepted until noon PT on Wednesday]
Answer: Congrats to @ChalkDustTeacher, the second consecutive MJMer to cross the halfway mark to Emeritus status. This week, despite being located in the Great White North (last I checked), he figured out that all three clips were played on US Hoildays (two of which Canada doesn't celebrate), quite fitting considering MJM359 dropped on MLK Day. Those holidays and clips were of course the Columbus Day "Tweezer" from 10/10/94, the New Year's Day "Simple" from 1/1/11, and the July 4th "It's Ice" from 7/4/00 (catch the SSB tease at the end?). You guys know what to do if you're mad about losing, right? Stay tuned Monday for MJM360 with @wumbo back at the helm.
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.
