Denver’s local rock scene feels like it’s grown in step with the city itself over the last five years, its myriad subcultures multiplying faster than the walls meant to hold them. Fact is, Denver has long acted as an incubator for wonderful and obscure (both in sound and popularity) rock music, from the bubblegum jangle of Dressy Bessy and the genre-agnostic the Czars of the 1990s to demonic marching band Itchy-O of this decade. Does that arrhythmic heart still beat in Denver?
Twenty-four-year-old singer-songwriter Alex G and R&B legend Lauryn Hill are our picks for the best shows around Denver this week. See you there, and if you don’t make it out, follow our music musings on Twitter and our selfies on Instagram. If you do, mind where you put your jacket. The logic of great artists tell us that you need to thoroughly learn the rules before you can understand how to break them.
You’re never too old to pursue your dreams — even if that dream is watching a train robbery circa 1899. As the Durango Herald reports, the Travel Channel will film a reenactment of a famous heist at the Durango Train Depot on Sunday, and its is looking for a handful of extras for the shoot to hang around in era-appropriate garb.
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".
