John Rua, the amazing choreographer of NYE Clones and Halloween's Abe Vigoda Wombat, has agreed to teach us some new Martian Monster dance steps for the April 28 Dinner & A Movie opener. We will be setting up a Zoom link for those who want to join around 8:30 PM during the webcast to dance in unison. The goal is to surprise the band by sharing that link and subsequent video with them. If you can't join Zoom then you can always film yourself during the webcast and post to Facebook, IG, Twitter with the hashtag #MartianMonster. This community has always been a two-way street, and hopefully we can send a little fun back their way during these crazy times. So practice the dance, and we'll see you for Dinner & A Movie!

Welcome to the 414th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final contest of April. Partly because I didn't leave myself enough time to prepare this week's puzzle in the traditional format, partly because it was fun the last time we did it, and partly because many of us are sheltering in place, we're going to switch up the format this week. That's right folks: this week, we'll be doing our second (I think?) MJM race! You may be asking yourself, "what the hell is an MJM race, brovid??". As you well should be. It's quite simple actually: at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET, I'll update the blahg with some clips. Instead of the selection of these clips being an exercise in sadism, and their identification being an act of masochism, the clips will all come from "well-known" jams. Some of these jams might be so well-known they've never been used as MJM clips in the past; others may be recycled from earlier MJMs - regardless, despite the subjective nature of labeling a jam "well-known," by the end of today, you best know these bad boys inside and out. First one to catch 'em all wins an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. We're looking for songs and dates here folks, as usual.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
