Back to the Garden offers music lovers a chance to recreate the magic that animated Woodstock, the most famous outdoor concert in music history that unfolded 48 years ago this week. Taking place Saturday and Sunday, more than 30 acts are slated to perform, including the Marrieds, Newport Electric and Supernatural Buffalo. It all takes place on the family farm of musician Brent Jones, near Dorchester.
The Play: Midnight Madness, presented by Port Stanley Festival Theatre, directed by Simon Joynes. The Show: Described as a Canadian comedy classic, Midnight Madness is the period piece that closes the Port Stanley Festival Theatre’s record-breaking 2017 summer season. This romantic comedy was written by Dave Carley and involves the ritualistic slaughter of a waterbed after a chance meeting moments before a midnight madness sale closes down.
Woodstock, the famous music festival that took place 48 years ago, was three days of peace and music. London’s Vegstock, on the other hand, is being billed as a single day of peace, beer and food. Vegan food, that is — produced without harming animals. “It appeals to people who generally just like craft beer, wine, who like supporting local events,” said Vegstock organizer Brittany Bragg.
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".
