From Escondido to Imperial Beach, from La Jolla Cove to Santee, San Diego County will celebrate America’s 241st birthday in grand style — with fireworks, parades, concerts and community festivals. Here’s a list of our favorite stretches of sand, patches of grass and stadium seats for watching spectacular fireworks shows planned throughout the region. (Traffic and parking will be impacted by the volume of people concentrated in the event areas.
If you’re planning to launch a mini concert series, the toned and tuned singing string quartet Well-Strung is a great act to book for the party. They’re not just four pretty faces. If you caught the gents when they performed at Martinis Above Fourth two years ago, you know this quad is both able and entertaining, performing a range of musical styles from classical to pop. And as a venue — part nightclub and part restaurant — Urban MO’s is a great place for an intimate concert.
On Wednesday, any corner of the world can become a backdrop for live music on Make Music Day. The global celebration of Free, Live Music Everywhere is held each year on June 21.

In San Diego, organized celebrations are planned throughout Balboa Park and at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad.
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".
