Every month, usually on Wednesday evenings when most folks are putting up their feet after a long day, Irmgard von der Gathen and a few friends are inhaling the sights and sounds of the Metropolitan Opera. No, she hasn't binged on a flight to New York City and a pricey ticket to the Met. She's gone a cheaper, more comfortable and arguably better route:" The Met: Live in HD."
There's no definitive source on who delivered the famous line, but it does pose the question: Do they really? That's a hard yes, says John O'Donnell, whose company, O'Donnell & O'Donnell, founded the Colorado Springs St. Patrick's Day Parade in 1985. The 34th annual ritual happens at noon Saturday along Tejon Street downtown. With that question answered, the next one is why? "It's free," said O'Donnell. But there's more to it than that. "We really do like to act like a town.
Too many listens to Pink Floyd's 1973 album, "The Dark Side of the Moon," and a man could go mad. That could have been the fate of J. Willoughby, founder of Black Jacket Symphony, a group that re-creates classic albums on stage, right down to the last note and chord change. The symphony will perform the Pink Floyd album in its entirety Thursday at Pikes Peak Center. "It's art," said Willoughby about the concept album. "It sounds weird and pretentious, but it really is. It was back when they made art.

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".
