I decided to crunch some numbers for MusicSucks (my other blog) and over at Annie's blog AtoZ. Mostly I just was curious what the deal was with all the show reviews lately, it seems the AtoZ staff has been canvasing the St Louis Metro area. This is a good thing, glad we now have the band traffic to support it. Anywho, with some help from curl and egrep I wrote some scripts to get the data and parse through it. Here's what I found:
Posts to AtoZ 'Show Review' Category: Blog Inception: September 2006 Total Shows: 105 Sep 2007: 3 Oct 2007: 9 Nov 2007: 6 Dec 2007: 3 Jan 2008: 4 Feb 2008: 8 Mar 2008: 18 Apr 2008: 19 May 2008: 26 Jun 2008 (so far): 9
They really kicked it up a notch this spring. Also note that it seems they started using the 'Show Review' category in Sep 2007, so this does not include anything prior to then. In fairness, here is the stats from my own blog for the 'In Attendance' category:
