Last week, Andy Wilcox ran through a list of insane shows that he was fortunate enough to witness at the might Triple Rock in Minneapolis, Minnesota. After some thought, and texts with Andy, I realized just how many great shows I had witnessed there. I don't think two posts about the best shows at the Triple Rock is too much. Truth be told, it's probably not even close to enough. I've forgotten a lot of shows and/or bands that I've seen in my life.
Nothing truly insane happened at this show but I do remember they opened with Constant Headache which is the best 4 minutes Joyce Manor ever laid to tape and I wore some American Apparel shirt over an American Nightmare shirt and I think that’s like the most appropriate thing to wear to a Joyce Manor show. I was fortunate enough to catch Title Fight twice at the three rocks.
Skateboarding was my life when I was younger. I was one of just a very small handful of skateboarders in a farm community in the 1990s. You get the picture. And I sucked! I was a rubbish skater, to be certain. But I still spent endless nights skating all over town until all hours of the night, alone or with friends — I didn’t care. Like almost everything else, skateboarding ebbs and flows.
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".
