I founded and currently run Shuttlecock Music Magazine, an independent blog hand picking and covering in-depth the most intriguing and exciting music acts in Kansas City and Lawrence. I also host the Shuttlecock Podcast and write freelance for The Pitch.
Tyler, The Creator and his Odd Future crew used to be known for their turn-of-the-decade amalgamation of skateboard culture, left-field hip-hop, and punk-rock energy. Each night of their early tours consisted of screaming superfans and hypebeasts, malicious mosh-pitters and frustrated security guards. Many wrote Tyler off as nothing more than a troublemaker, a provocateur whose 15 minutes were ticking by fast.
Canadian noise rock duo Death From Above was originally scheduled to perform at The Truman on Wednesday night, but, likely due to poor ticket sales, the festivities were moved down the road to recordBar. Roadies and instrument techs were visibly disgruntled as they crammed gear onto and around the smaller-than-expected stage.
As temperatures outside plummeted, a couple hundred kids -- and a few parents -- found warmth in a Sunday night rock show at The Bottleneck. Turnover, from Virginia Beach, Virginia, started its run in 2011 as a somewhat typical pop-punk band. Things took a turn for the best in 2015, however, when the band released its debut album "Peripheral Vision."

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
