Sunday night’s sold-out show “Mountain Stage” at the Culture Center will be another milestone show. Joni Deutsch will be returning to guest host the show. Deutsch is one of just a few who have ever hosted the show besides longtime host and “Mountain Stage” co-creator, Larry Groce. She’s the first woman to do the job, the youngest of the guest hosts and will be first host to do the show without the physical presence of Groce. During the “Mountain Stage” show Sunday, Groce won’t be in the building.
In retrospect, I shouldn’t have had the Red Bull. The morning before I was supposed to go on stage for my first comedy open mic at Monkey Barrel, a kind of trial run for my turn at emceeing at Comedy Zone Charleston, I woke up feeling like I had a Saint Bernard sitting on my chest. Anxiety and fatigue were getting to me. A few days earlier, I’d come up with about five minutes of material. I thought it was funny, and it looked like it held together in a coherent stream.
Progressive rock legend Carl Palmer remembered the first time he came to America. The year was 1968 and he was drumming for shock-rock pioneer Arthur Brown. Best remembered for the psychedelic hit “Fire,” Brown’s band, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, included wild costumes, flaming helmets, strobe lights and bizarre stage decoration. Palmer, who performs Tuesday with 1970s and ’80s progressive rock band Asia, which opens for Journey at Big Sandy Superstore Arena, said Brown was ahead of his time.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
