SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Delivering an extended evening of heavy riffs and headbanging sounds, Epicenter 2017 offers up a packed bill of nine metal, stoner rock and doom outfits at the Ritz in San Jose Saturday topped by Bay Area heroes High On Fire. Presented in collaboration by Oskar Blues Brewery and Heavy San Jose, Epicenter 2017 will kick off early at 5:30 p.m. with an array of bands from the here and abroad.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Influential singer/songwriter, solo star and the onetime front man of UK rock greats Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter and his Rant Band deliver songs from throughout his illustrious career at the Fillmore this Friday night. Born Ian Hunter Patterson in the West Midlands of England in 1939, the singer fell into the music industry after winning a talent contest at a holiday camp with two members of the already established Apex Group.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The late legendary guitar great, composer and satirist Frank Zappa in the mid-1980s released a live album with the title Does Humor Belong In Music? That question gets answered with a resounding “Yes!” by two stylistically disparate bands that bring their tandem tour to the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco Tuesday night when local geriatric reprobates The Grannies share the stage with hilariously profane Texas honky-tonk outfit The Beaumonts.
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".
