aybesea So, I'm unveiling something new for this tour. Starting with last year's summer tour I began playing with a more "analytic" way to assess shows and their relative merits. I developed a proprietary (to me, at least) algorithm for measuring the contributions of song selection and jamminess of an individual show. Each of these two categories offers a numeric contribution to an overall score. It was happenstance that the range of values for the combined score went from 400-1600, sound familiar? This leads me to name this score the "Show Assessment Test" or SAT (cute, huh?) I figure that for this tour, I'll share out my values and if anyone's interested they are welcome to chime in with feedback.

So, the SAT for this show ends up being almost exactly 1100 (exactly 1100.11) with Stash (192.90) and NMINML (147.35) being the biggest contributors. A Google search for an 1100 SAT Score yields this desription:

Is a 1100 on the SAT a good score? A 1100 is a little better than average. It places you in the top 59th percentile nationally out of the 1.7 million students taking the SAT this year.

I thought that this description matches this show to a tee! Hence my decision to go ahead and post this on .NET. Hopefully, some of you might find a little value in this experiment... I know that I have.
