For people who have spent two nights camping on the pavement outside the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 18-year-old India Rain Harrison and her mother, Christine, are less shattered than they should be. They arrived from Harrogate at 6pm on Tuesday with the aim of being at the front of the queue for Niall Horan’s first British headline show on Thursday, and apart from toilet breaks at a nearby hotel, they have been here ever since.
How did Maroon 5 become so big that the title of their last album, Overexposed, was less hyperbole than simple statement of fact? The short answer is that their 2011 single Moves Like Jagger was so hypnotically catchy that 14 million people bought it – but that doesn’t quite explain how these affable Californians have surpassed equally tight pop-funk outfits to reach the pinnacle.
Brighton Centre Their stagecraft makes Kraftwerk seem like conga dancers, but the crowd laps up every second of the Mercury winners’ multi-textured math rock“I’m a female rebel,” insists Miley Cyrus’s disembodied voice, piercing the opening song of Alt-J’s show. Stripped of twerking and tongue associations, the sampled line floats in and out, a forlorn ghost in the band’s krautrock-cum-folk machine.
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".
