Early January in Philadelphia means that it’s time for another dual headlining show by Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven. This annual event took over the TLA Friday (a departure from a string of World Cafe Live appearances). With David Lowery fronting both bands and a phenomenal lineup of guitars, strings and drums to back up the unique repertoire of both bands, it was a rollicking good night. Here are some photos and four things we loved.
The bitter cold didn’t keep the Dream Syndicate from bringing the rock and roll heat to Sellersville Theater on Friday. With joy and precision, the foursome, who returned from hibernation last year after not releasing an album since 1988, rocked the gorgeous Bucks County venue. Here are photos and four things we loved about the show:The Dream Syndicate is a solid cast of new and old members, with Steve Wynn leading the way on vocals and guitar.
CARMEL, Ind. — The decision by Carmel to approve a homeowner's large solar installation has left neighbors fuming and fearing their property values will suffer. Just after Halloween, David Luedtke began installing a roughly 5,000-square-foot, 8-foot-tall array with at least 156 solar panels at the back of his 11-acre estate on Clay Center Road. While the array is not visible from the road, it backs up to Clay Springs, a small neighborhood with homes averaging around $500,000.
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".
