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!
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.
