The new movie Lady Bird follows the adventures of a teenager living in Sacramento in 2002. Saoirse Ronan plays the young woman named Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson. Some may know Ronan from the film Brooklyn and Broadway's The Crucible. The camera just loves her from the minute she appears, and she grows up before our very eyes, flawed and real. This is actress Greta Gerwig's directorial debut. She also wrote the script that is loosely based on her life.
The indie band The Drums have an all-American sound that continues to be smooth and catchy. Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham formed the band through a longtime friendship. After releasing a self-titled album, the group gained a great deal of attention and was the most Shazam-ed band of 2009, and has supported such groups as Florence and the Machine and Kings of Leon on tour. While the other members have since dropped off, Pierce has remained to carry on the name.
Based on the hit film, the musical version of School of Rock follows the adventures of Dewey Finn, a rocker who lands a job as a substitute teacher then transforms the students into a band. Featuring Andrew Lloyd Webber's music with Glenn Slater's lyrics and book by Julian Fellowes, the show debuted on Broadway and now travels across the country. Kristian EspÃritu is an ensemble member of the national tour. She brings experience from past productions such as Here Lies Love and Over the Pass.
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".
