Welcome to the 364th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the fourth and hardest of February. 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 – these clips are connected by a theme that need not 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!
Answer: Wizard or vulture, it doesn't take a mathematician to figure out that @ChalkDustTeacher is only one win shy of the promised land. This week he schooled the rest of the weekly MJM crew for the sixth time, using the hint (and some juicy comments) to identify the 10/31/10 "Stash," the 10/31/98 "Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley," and the 7/30/03 "Twist." @ChalkDustTeacher didn't fall for the Halloween red herring, and instead figured out that the hint referred to show gaps – the first night of Mexico featured huge bust-outs of "Spock's Brain" (429 show gap), "Who Loves the Sun?" (602) and "Spanish Moon" (306), last played on 7/30/03, 10/31/98, and 10/31/10, respectively – the shows from which this week's clips derive. Stay tuned for MJM365 when we drop a single clip puzzle that will complete our first orbit.
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.
