How does it work?
One of us uses a series of web forms to enter data into the database (there were close to 3500 entries in the database on the day of launch, and over 28400 at the release of v2.0), and the public site pages go "ask" the database for whatever is available at that moment. Every time you visit the site, you're being given the absolute freshest butter we can provide.
- for the technically inclined:
The data is all live and fully normalized and relational, meaning that no data point is repeated twice. There is a database table for each discrete item (songs, shows, venues, sets, setlist songs, etc.), and metadata tables that manage relationships. All of the numeric metrics are calculated on the fly (e.g. "times played" will always show an actual count of how many shows a song appears in).
