So, Rolfy, what do those asterisks mean anyway?

There is no real system, it's just me, sometimes I forget. I pretty much have to see the band before I rate them.

In general, one star means they are a decent band that gave a good performance when I saw them and are worth seeing. Also, proven bands with a weekly gig somewhere (rare now) automatically get one star.
Two stars means I think they're really worth seeing.
Three stars means they are a top band and really worth seeing at the venue listed.
Four stars means usually they are a National Band at the top of their performance or else a very top regional star in a very fine setting.
Five stars means they sit at the right hand of God. Or are a Really Big Act at a Big Festival or major venue. B.B. King gets five stars.
