Welcome to the 245th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate and second-most difficult MJM of October. The winner will receive an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and the theme that connects them. 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!

Answer: Congrats to @dbertsch, who identified all three Mystery "Jams," all from tour-opening shows: 2/13/97 (PYITE >) Jam, 7/21/97 (Theme ->) Jam, and (9/8/00 Gin) > Jam. I didn't "dock" him for not figuring out that they were all tour openers, because a) that aspect was something I was going to drop in the hint, and b) if anything, he solved a tougher puzzle. Be sure to tune in on Monday morning (if Vegas hasn't handed your ass to you!), when a guest host will drop a spooky and tough Halloween contest on you for the final and most difficult MJM of October.

ucpete @drshaws: I only post a hint when it isn't solved by Tuesday morning...

drshaws Fair enough! I thought it might be solved, but there wasn't moderator confirmation. ;)

ucpete It's safe to say that if you don't see a hint about 24 hours (26 hours at most) after the MJM drops, it's been solved – I'm too lazy to call it on a Tuesday, as I'm pretty well locked into the Monday @ 10 AM drop, Tuesday @ ~10 AM hint (if necessary), Wednesday @ ~10 AM answer routine :)
