Playing Philadelphia for the second time ever on Thursday, the U.K.’s This Is the Kit filled Johnny Brenda’s with a whirlwind of emotion. Led by Kate Stables, the group mesmerized the crowd for over an hour, playing in support of their 2017 release, Moonshine Freeze. Here are some photos and four things we loved about the show. Hailing from Bristol, England, Stables has a rich vocal range that mixes perfectly with her banjo and guitar.
Vita and the Woolf is one of Philadelphia’s most dynamic live acts. Watching the Jennifer Pague-led project develop over the last three years has been quite rewarding. On Friday, a sold-out Johnny Brenda’s played host to the most exciting show I have seen from them yet, with raw emotion and energy pulsing throughout. Here are four standout moments as well as some photos from the night.
A rare musical convergence occurred in Ardmore last night when Philly-based folk-rock extraordinaire Wesley Stace (and his crack backing band the English UK) joined forces with the talented Juliana Hatfield. An intimate crowd soaked up the pairing at Ardmore Music Hall. Here are some photos and highlights of the night. With his backing band, the English UK, filling in the rhythms and expanding the rock palette, Stace took the audience on a trek of whimsy and ruminations.
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".
