Elizabeth Harris, best known as Grouper, notoriously doesn’t like to play live much — that is, unless it’s at her kind of venue. One such space is Daniels Spectrum, an arts-based community center on the eastside of Toronto. Grouper performed there on the final Saturday of September, as part of the lineup of entirely women-led acts at a new annual event called Venus Fest. Every set at Venus Fest, which was all-ages and organized by local artist Aerin Fogel, was triumphant.
1. Young Dolph might be nearly invincible, but he knows he's not immortal. On the oscillating “While U Here,” he encourages love during your time on earth. 2. Our WCW this week is Kodie Shane, whose killer new track, “Bounce Back,” is about needing a "bad bitch." Same. 3. The title track from dvsn's excellent new album, Morning After, is so damn romantic, with its strings and dulcet tones. 4.
In late September, Chelsea Wolfe released her seventh full-length, Hiss Spun, via Sargent House. It's probably her darkest and best work — Hiss Spun swirls and plunges like something metallic at the bottom of a muddy pond. And it dives straight into full-on doom metal, no hesitation. And that rules. After listening to the album for like, the tenth time, I started wondering, what kind of metal does Chelsea Wolfe listen to?
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".
