Now that we’ve gotten passed the greeting card generated holiday of Valentine’s Day, we can get back to our regular program. There is an absolutely ton of gigs happening this week, running the gamut from pitch black dark techno to gas guzzling rock ’n’ roll, but the real big pick of the week will go to third wave black metal commune dwellers who will warm up the room for some truly legendary Norwegian second wave black metal masters.
This Wednesday marks Valentine’s Day, or what us single people call “Crying into a 2-litre tub of ice cream while listening to Fields of Nephilim day.” For those of you who won’t be eating sweet and slightly unfrozen treats out of a cardboard carton on Wednesday, there are plenty of gigs happening this week to treat your sweetheart right. Thursday: If your heart’s desire was to check out Tokio Hotel at Club Soda you will broken-hearted as this gig is cancelled. Fear not!
After a couple of grim months, things are finally picking up in the clubs and the third edition of the Taverne Tour is definitely helping put the sweat on the walls of local swill joints this weekend. Most of Taverne Tour’s venues are local watering holes that don’t regularly feature live music, which is what really makes this annual fest so much fun.
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".
