Las Vegas is a city built on dreams. Sometimes those dreams even take physical form, as the castles, pyramids and Eiffel Towers on the Las Vegas Strip prove. However, there are many casinos and attractions that never quite made the transition from drawing board to concrete and steel. Perhaps the most spectacular of these was Xanadu, which was intended for the site now occupied by the Excalibur.
With a catalog that spans more than three decades and some 25-odd (very odd) releases, the Melvins have seen rock ’n’ roll on all sides, from indie release to major label, next big thing to legendary lifers. The band has been credited as progenitors of grunge and sludge rock, but the Melvins’ sound is hard to categorize—it’s dense and heavy, but plays with genre and tempo. The Melvins are also renowned road warriors: Several years ago, they played dates in all 50 states in 51 days.
Summer festivals tend to be pretty mellow places these days. Lots of smiling folks wearing flower crowns holding their smartphones high, meandering from art installation to gourmet food truck as the hits of the summer drift on the air. Psycho Las Vegas, however, is nothing like that. For three days, it takes over Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with more than 70 acts whose fan bases range from cult to KISS Army.
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".
