Welcome to the 377th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the last of May. The winner will receive two MP3 download codes courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the two 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: This week's theme is most definitely not "Theme" – in fact, these two jams were played before "Theme from the Bottom" debuted.
Answer: Pencils down! The Blog has won again! Unbelievably, for the first time ever, the Blog has defeated the MJM crew back-to-back weeks; speaking of which, no one figured out that this week's MJM featured back-to-back versions of "David Bowie": 10/12/94 and 10/18/94 (in reverse order). I never would've thought two jams from the same song played in the same state, the same week, could've stumped folks this hard, but so it goes. Come back next week when we get an easy MJM for three LivePhish codes!
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.
