Ten years ago, Zach Lupetin moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of a fabled promised land. Initially his hopes were directed at screenwriting and playwriting but, having played in bands since the age of 14, he also put up a Craigslist ad to find like-minded musicians.
No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont and dynamic AFI frontman Davey Havok started writing songs together in 2014, secretly formed Dreamcar, and now their self-titled debut album arrives May 12 via Columbia Records. A new single, “All Of The Dead Girls,” is out today. At the Roxy on Wednesday night, many fans in the crowd sported their vintage AFI and No Doubt tees and paraphernalia, and eagerly soaked up the band’s energetic 1980s dancefloor theatrics.
Lolipop Records is leaving the comfort of its cozy shop under the bridge in Echo Park for a big warehouse in Boyle Heights. Since 2013, when they opened on Glendale Boulevard next to the Echoplex, Wyatt Blair and Ignacio Gonzalez used their little nook as a record store, label headquarters, recording studio, social hub and occasional venue.
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".
