MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 265

Welcome to the 265th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second and second-easiest of March. 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 two 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!

N.B.: Thanks for your feedback on the "previous MJM winners can't win on the first day of the first MJM of the month" idea – vets and n00bs and everyone in between liked the idea, so it's a go. I'll provide details when the time comes, but yes: I'll allow previous MJM winners to PM me their answers in advance so they don't need to be at a computer when the hint drops the next day. (Though what kind of filthy casual doesn't refresh the MJM every minute from Monday to Wednesday?)

Answer: Congratulations to @My_Powerful_Mind on his second MJM win and first in more than two years. He lived up to his handle by quickly identifying the 8/28/93 Antelope and the 8/7/10 Light, two vastly different (but top notch) jams that both happened to take place on the same stage in Berkeley, CA. Come back Monday for MJM266, but check out the blog tomorrow for the first round of Mystery Jam Madness!

mcgrupp81 Nice choices this week. 8/28 is actually a well played show throughout and definitely worth a listen. Oh, and what's with always checking to see if I'm a robot? It almost makes me want to create a "jaded vet" robot that heavily favors Phish 1.0 and streams performances from Big Cypress to drown out anyone that tries to make a positive assessment of Phish 2.0/3.0.

I had a feeling this week's would go down quickly, but I just couldn't help myself – I love all four Greek shows (and the first third of my handle refers to my two UC Alma Maters).

Oddly enough, likely due to burning myself out the first two nights, those being my first Phish shows at my (undergrad) alma mater, and the anxiety over keeping my wife's pregnancy (of twins taboot) secret for a couple more weeks despite wanting to tell the dozens of friends I attended with, I just couldn't lock into the 8/7/10 Light when it was played live. Enjoyed it? Absolutely. Distracted? Yeah : /

Upon relisten, it's unbelievably special, particularly that section starting at the 9 minute mark. On the fly composition would be an understatement... but that night, while some of my friends had profound spiritual experiences during Light, I just bobbed my head and danced along. If I could go back in time, I'd rage that jam like there was no tomorrow...

Oh, we ALL have a story of show regret. I am sure there are some doozies floating out there. You know there's some wack-a-mole out there that declined an invite to 3-22-93 and countless other classics.

I went just now to give the 8-7-10 Light another listen and typed in Light 8/7/10 on Youtube. I scrolled down and saw the Phish performance but also saw a video featuring American Idol winner David Cook performing a song called "light On" in my old college town on 8/7/10. I went to William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. It's about 20 minutes from Hampton. Of course the band was on hiatus for most of my time in school... I was just getting into the band in Fall 99 and if I had stayed after finals, I would have been able to have caught the 12-18-99 show. Funny enough, I was in Florida for the millennium with my family and perhaps a few more months of Phish exposure would have led to the decision to blow them off for the ultimate Phish show. As with everything in life, you snooze you lose.
