jam-tuesday: Add jam setlists & stats for public consumption

I've been keeping these to myself for a while, and finally got around to
asking Matt if he'd be cool with me publishing them. I think it's a nice
thing to highlight on the site, and something I'll want to refer back to
in the years to come :)
