In a career of more than 50 years, Sal Ritz played in so many solo, duo, trio, band and orchestra gigs throughout the Lehigh Valley and beyond, it’s likely he could have played with anyone, at any time. The tribute that two dozen musicians and colleagues held in Ritz’s name Thursday at Easton’s State Theatre certainly captured that spirit.
One of the leading blues guitarists today will return to State Theatre in Easton, it was just announced. Joe Bonamassa, who opened for B.B. King when he was only 12 years old and has had 16 solo albums hit No. 1 on the Billboard Blues chart – the most of any artist -- will play at 8 p.m. April 24. Tickets, at $89-$179, go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Sept. 29 at the State Theatre box office, 453 Northampton St., Easton, by calling 800-999-STATE or online at www.statetheatre.org.
Here are the Top 5 Concerts of the Coming Week:1. THE ATARIS and THE QUEERSThe Ataris began in the second wave of punk in the ’90s, with bands like Blink 182 and Green Day. It had fame with its 2003 album “So Long, Astoria” and its cover of Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer” for a gold album and gold Top 20 hit. That breakthrough wrongfully lumped The Ataris with pop-punk bands.
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".
