Kyle Swick spends just a few minutes mulling over the implications of what it means to call his booking and promotions company, and now two-years strong summer festival, Irrelevant Music. Clearly, there's a sense of irony at work behind his branding concept. "It started when I was booking enough music around town that I needed to come up with a name, like Tight Bros. has their thing, and OK Productions has theirs," Swick says.
Before Kendrick Lamar’s Damn. tour stops at Infinite Energy Arena on July 17, the Compton, California native and the pride of West Coast hip-hop brings a bit of his style to Downtown Atlanta. On Monday morning, the day of his Gwinnett County show with Travis Scott and D.R.A.M., Lamar’s Damn. pop-up shop will open its doors at 117 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive S.W. That’s catty corner from the courthouse, just a few doors up from Jam Rock, and in the same building that Creative Loafing calls home.
Mattiel Brown is a rising phenomenon in the Atlanta music scene. A lauded illustrator and designer by day, Brown’s bold voice and sophisticated stage presence have wooed anyone within earshot since 2014, when she started working with the songwriting team of Randy Michael and Jonah Swilley — before they called themselves the InCrowd. Her latest release, the “Count Your Blessings” b/w “Whites Of Their Eyes” 7-inch arrives July 14 via Burger Records.
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".
