In what is just one more awesome opportunity to enjoy stellar live music on a night that is particularly jam-packed with options in SA, Wolverton Home Concerts will host an Austin invasion of a bill. From the experimental sounds of avant-garde composer/songwriter More Eaze (who will play a rare set of acoustic guitar-based songs) to the quirky and emotive folk-pop of songwriters Matthew Squires and Boone Graham, this promises to be a heck of an evening of music.
Max Baca and his band Los Texmaniacs are keeping the conjunto sound alive and well. Baca, perhaps best dubbed a neo-traditionalist, has been mentored by Flaco Jimenez (who quite frequently plays and records with the band) and well-noted as a true master at his instrument, the traditional Mexican bajo sexto (a 12-string, guitar-like implement).
The term “indie rock,” much maligned these past several years, has been used to describe so many different sounds and bands as to have been practically rendered useless. When we use it in the case of this particular showcase, we’re trying to indicate bands that would have sounded right at home in the college radio milieu during the first decade of this millennium. The bands on this bill make music that is, for one, not easy to classify into one particular genre.
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".
