Welcome to the 294th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of October. 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 song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday. Good luck!
*Reminder: For the first MJM of each month, only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint. If you have never won an MJM, please answer as a blog comment below. If you have previously won an MJM, but you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me; once the hint has been posted, everyone should answer on the blog. If that's confusing to you, check out the handy decision tree I threw together to help guide you. If you're not sure if you've won before, check in the MJM Results spreadsheet linked below.
Answer: We have a winner, by PM – congrats to @FunkyCFunkyDo on rapidly identifying this week's MJM, a show for which he was undoubtedly in attendance (being a PNWer): 7/27/13 "Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley" (-> 2001). Do yourself a favor and listen to that breathtaking outro jam while imagining yourself at the Gorge... yup. Funky's sixth win puts him on the precipice of MJM Emeritus status, ahead of all other active MJM contestants. Let's hope for the sake of the challenge that he chooses an MJM of a high degree of difficulty as his swan song! We're back for two clips and a theme on Monday for MJM295.
