Welcome to the 266th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate and second-hardest 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 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!
Note: Congrats to the Select Sixteen Plus Two who advanced in the MMJM Tournament, whose names I have announced on the Round 1 post – Round 2 will begin on Thursday; keep an eye on the blog and your emails.
Answer: Congrats to @TwiceBitten who knocked this week's curveball over the wall on the first pitch, earning his third MJM win overall by identifying three clips from band members' birthdays: 9/30/00 Timber (Trey), 5/17/92 Hood (Page), and 6/3/11 Bowie (Mike). Fishman didn't get a slot because 2/19/91 and 2/19/93 didn't have any good MJM candidates. Special thanks to Bill (@psuphan) who thought this could make a cool theme, told me about it instead of keeping it to himself, and was so stoked that I ended up using it that he decided to donate to the Mockingbird Foundation! MJM267 will drop Monday, but Round 2 of the MMJM Tournament will begin tomorrow during the day – I'll email the remaining participants today and put up a blog post ASAP.

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 over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
