It's happened, or at least it's happening: Someone in this town is doing his best to water down the Houston music scene like so many watered down lagers. Hear me out here, I'm not against beer companies. But, when bands play at a brewery, they're essentially turning Houston into Austin one event at a time. Have you ever seen people try to eat at a cafe in Austin, and they can't enjoy themselves because some terrible keyboard-based idiot is playing Billy Joel covers?
If you're reading music blogs, the phrase "guitar rock is dead" gets uttered enough to almost render it a lie. The truth is, that while traditional guitar rock isn't as readily available nowadays, rock n' roll that isn't of the indie fare has gotten heavier and heavier in the absence of the traditional genre. For Houston's We Were Wolves, the memo from rock critics must have gone unnoticed. On their new E.P.
Most of San Diego’s pot farms and marijuana manufacturing sites will be concentrated in three areas of the city: Mira Mesa, Kearny Mesa and near the Mexican border. Of 78 proposals submitted Thursday to open such businesses in San Diego, 67 are in one of those three areas. That’s primarily because of strict zoning regulations that sharply limit eligible properties across the city.
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".
