The pairing of the famous locals the Felice Brothers and the colorful New Paltz acoustic quartet Yard Sale was a no-duh natural, and it is almost surprising how long it took to materialize. Both bands operate squarely in the deus loci tradition of Dylan and the Band. Both play an irreverent, surreal, gutsy and bastard Americana with porous stylistic borders and a self-issued carte blanche permission to do whatever the f*ck they please without having to consult any Roots Reenactor High Council.
My second-favorite British Invasion band, the Zombies, got their shot at the big time by the agency of my first-favorite British Invasion band, the Beatles. A quintet of childhood friends from St. Alban, the Zombies landed a spot on a populist talent recruitment television program (Hertfordshire’s Got Talent?) on the week that George Harrison happened to be among the celebrity judges.
In the wake of last year’s triumphant Hudson concert by Brooklyn Raga Massive, members of the cross-cultural musical collective are returning to the town for a set on Saturday with a new project for what looks to be another transportive performance, this one at Ör Gallery & Tavern. The Unstruck Sound is a trio inspired by the Vedic concept of anahata nada, the primordial sound that emanates from the universe.
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".
