Repeatr outlines the process by which song ratings were calculated using the Fugazi Live Series metadata.

Songnumberone presents analysis of the choice of opening songs.

92 SONGS summarises the main results of the data processing and choice modelling as an interactive graph. The graph shows ratings, performance counts and launch dates for the 92 songs that were performed live and released.

Shiny web app

A Shiny web app that presents some of the data from the Repeatr package with interactive controls can be found here.


The initial data was provided by Ian James Wright of the Alphabetical Fugazi podcast, who got it from Carni Klirs who did the project Visualizing the History of Fugazi. The coordinates and tour data came from The D-I-Y Data of Fugazi by Matthew Conlen.
