MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 238

if you're having trouble with the clip, right-click on it while it is playing and "Save Audio As..." to download it.
Welcome to the 238th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest MJM of September. Happy Labor Day to you all, especially those who got their asses handed to them at Dick's this weekend*! The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery jam clip. 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!

*I'm writing this before Dick's has started, wishfully thinking there'll be another "Ass Handed."

Hint:

Ignore the year.

Answer: Congrats to first-time winner @courvoisier, who climbed right back in the saddle after a near win last week and correctly identified the 7/15/16 Chalk Dust Torture from the Gorge (located in George, WA), taking home a LivePhish code for his efforts. After consecutive strong showings, is he the next savant to take MJM by storm? Or will one of the multiple MJM winners swoop back in when the level of difficulty jumps up another notch? Find out on Monday when we're back with MJM239.

By George I believe he has it! Don't quite understand the $1.00 hint, but then again I'm getting very drunk before my fantasy draft, so what do I know.

Good find!

GottaJibboo Nice win @courvoisier! I thought the George WA hint was too obvious so I was searching San Fran shows due to the L on the dollar.

That may the first time I've seen someone say the hint was too obvious. I'll take that 9 times out of 10 over the usual "what is this cryptic bullshit bro??" -- the tenth time I need to hear it; you know, to keep it real.

Ha! you're probably right. Historical hints have been as tough to decipher as the jams themselves. Nonetheless, I love a challenge and love MJM even more! I've found it to become one of the more enjoyable aspects of .net over the past few years.

That is really great to hear, thanks! For what it's worth, I've tried to make the hints relatively straightforward. Definitely use Occam's Razor when deciphering things. Though I do get a kick out of the wild imaginations and borderline conspiracy theories some folks get when the hint drops. A few weeks back when @schvice ran the show, he chose that video that basically said "Mike's Groove" in the video title, but the ideas that folks initially ran with were pretty awesome and funny.
