MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 271

Welcome to the 271st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the last and most difficult of April. 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 four mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the answer. Each person gets one guess – 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 around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Hint:

Answer: Congrats to @TwiceBitten on his fourth MJM win – he's crossed the halfway mark to MJM Emeritus status. He quickly figured out that the guy in the hint's picture is the (former) "Can you hear me now?" Verizon spokesman, and listed all the shows that have taken place at Verizon-sponsored venues. While that isn't exactly kosher (it's ok to discuss the clips and hints, e.g. "that's the Verizon guy," but explicitly laying out the path to the answer for others generally isn't), but it ended up being a moot point as he was able to find the four clips himself – if anything, listing those shows hurt his chances of victory! He pulled it off anyway, and correctly identified the 6/14/11 DWD, 10/22/16 Simple, 7/25/03 Hood, and 7/23/03 DWD.

Phart_Door So that's Verizon guy, right? Or is he Sprint guy now? Very confusing!

PhreePhish Well done!!

Now I have a free night to myself!
(That said, I need Mondays off again. I am switching from Wednesdays off to Tuesdays off next month though-- that should help me win one last one of these!)

Eh, I'll probably just end up listening to these shows tonight anyway.

TwiceBitten How many of these things are you allowed to win? this is my fourth or fifth... I'll be sad when I can't play no more ;)
, comment by mcgrupp81
mcgrupp81 That hint is creepy as all hell. Nice job on the jams this week. I remember reading the review the day after the show and the mention of where this Hood went and was shocked since they had never taken Hood that far out.

This is your fourth win – you can always check the spreadsheet ^^ up there if you forget! You win seven and you're on Mt. Jamzmore. Next MJM Emeritus will make a Baker's Dozen.

@PhreePhish – get your priorities straight brah! ;)

@mcgrupp81 – that *dude is creepy as hell. Yeah, I remember that Hood making Waves too – Summer '03 was my shit. Fresh out of college, etree bumping like mad, I was downloading like a fiend... ahhh, the good ol' days. Don't sleep on the Hood from the week after though! Like many times in the band's history, they often go back to the well once more before falling back into routine:

just letting everyone know that I will refrain from such obvious hints in the future. one of the reasons I felt obligated to solve the puzzle this week is because I so foolishly spelled it out for people and I didn't want anyone else to be accused of cheating :)
