We still don’t know if the rumor about Bruce Springsteen playing an extended engagement at a Broadway theater later this year is true. But in the meantime, I thought I’d amuse myself (and maybe some other people) by seeing if I could find 10 ways to connect Bruce Springsteen to Broadway. It was a daunting task, but I was up to it. Here they are. 1.
“You pick the songs, we play ’em” is the advertised promise of the “Max Weinberg’s Jukebox” show that the E Street Band drummer and will present at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, Aug. 30. Joining him will be Glen Burtnik, Bob Burger and John Merjave of The Weeklings, who will presumably handle most if not all of the vocals. Attendees will get to make up the setlist from a video menu of more than 200 songs, including E Street material, Beatles and Stones classics, and more.
In January, Jake Clemons headlined the main concert of the Light of Day Festival at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, performing the last set in a show that lasted seven hours. He had just released his first full-length album, Fear & Love, a few days previously. “When you’re playing a live show — for me anyway — I want to make sure there’s a value, for people who have sacrificed to be there,” he says. “But in terms of pressure beyond the audience itself …”“I don’t know.
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".
