To find world music acts as good as the ones presented by the New Brunswick Cultural Center’s sixth annual Hub City Sounds concert series and Perth Amboy Artworks’ second annual Live at the Ferry Slip shows, you usually have to go into New York City. And after you’ve added up the tickets, the tolls, the gas, and the parking, the costs can become a challenge, if not a barrier, to attending.
What do you think is the best way to spend your tax dollars? Investing in schools and infrastructure? Feeding the hungry? Tax breaks for different groups? Well, if you're a big music fan, you must love living in Central Jersey because there are nearly 200 free municipal and county concerts and festivals happening into the fall. Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties present their own concert series in their parks.
You once again can demand your independence when the Black Potatoe Music Festival returns this weekend for the 21st time to the historic Red Mill in Clinton. Mid-July always is the busiest time in Hunterdon County with the Rubber Ducky Race on July 16, the last day of the Potatoe Fest, and Bastille Day celebrated in nearby Frenchtown.
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".
