You could look at last weekend's LouFest one of two ways: The end to an overpacked summer of music that was a bit too busy for a city the size of St. Louis or a watershed moment that showed the rest of the world that, yes, this is undoubtedly a music town through and through.
X-Mas in September hits St. Louis with three festivals tailored to most of the city's show-going population. LouFest descends on Forest Park with the likes of Snoop Dog, Run the Jewels and more while the Wayback edition of Pointfest offers a nostalgic power-trip at the Hollywood Casino Amphithreatre on Sunday.Those who prefer to dig a little deeper into underground music should look into Pü Fest over at 2720 Cherokee Street.
We here at RFT Music hate to say "we told you so" since it's literally our job to do so, but we named local rapper Bates one of the "10 Acts to Watch in 2016" and included her on our inaugural "STL 77" earlier this year. Now the big release party for her new albumstands among the shows featured in the next days, including An Under Cover Weekend, the Wargs and much more. Consider the following a road map for making the most of this weekend in St. Louis.7:45 p.m. Delmar Hall, 6133 Delmar Boulevard.
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".
