Despite having some technical hiccups and a cancellation, Day 3 of Pitchfork had some of the best artists of the weekend. The biggest highlights came from hip-hop and R&B artists, including Isaiah Rashad. The Tennessee rapper combines fast-paced beats and deeply personal lyrics on his debut album The Sun’s Tirade. Rashad gained notoriety as the support act during Schoolboy Q’s international tour in 2014, which is also the year he debuted at Pitchfork.
Day 2 of Pitchfork started with high energy that lasted through the night. The Blue Stage, the smallest stage at Pitchfork, drew some of the biggest, most excited crowds of the day. Punk rockers Cherry Glazerr’s fans filled the park for their early time slot (2:45), and frontwoman Clementine Creevy lived up to her punk rock reputation, crawling across the stage with her teeth bared and her tongue out.
It was a perfect day for Pitchfork. The sun peaked out from time to time, and the temperature was almost chilly compared to average Chicago summer days. The lovely weather seemed to boost the crowd’s energy as they flocked to the Red, Green, and Blue Stages throughout the day. Playing hip-hop to dance and everything in between, Day 1 of Pitchfork this year was a tremendous success. Vince Staples and Danny Brown stood out as the most energetic sets of the day.
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".
