Texas Theatre and the Wild Detectives are bosom buddies. Which is why it could have been awkward when the Oak Cliff venues found out they were both planning concerts on the same night and vying for the same opener, local psych pop band Midnight Opera. Instead of hosting competing events, they've banded together to create a diverse mini music festival Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Jefferson Boulevard movie theater.
Silas Nello wears vests, silver rings, feathered folk hats and striped shirts — but he's not playing the role of a Southern folk rock musician. You can tell when you're around him that he's comfortable in his skin. He also has the air of someone who knows things are finally falling into place. Nello has spent the last 15 months writing, recording and preparing to release Out of the Light and playing shows every weekend. Soon, he'll embark on his first Midwest tour.
Nothing can feel as unproductive and costly as going out drinking. So why not work in a competitive match of trivia? Bring the right team to one of these trivia events in DFW, and you can turn imbibing into an educational and perhaps even free activity. These 10 trivia nights offer prizes and drink and food specials. Find one that suits you and prepare yourself to argue with a friend about what year Home Alone 2 came out, how many Grammys Quincy Jones has and where the Replacements are from.
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".
