If you’re looking for a little pop, a little indie rock, make your way to the London Music Hall Friday night. That’s where you’ll find five-piece Toronto band Mermaids Exist, ready to play songs off their debut album Losing Colour. The new album features the smooth single Call Me a Liar (catch the video on their site at mermaidsexist.com), and it follows the band’s big win at the 2016 Toronto Independent Music Awards.
If a chill Saturday is what you’re after, take a trip to the London Music Club’s Big Hall. That’s where you can catch a set from singer-songwriter Andy Chillman, who’s enjoying the release of his new album Up Hill Both Ways. The collection includes songs old and new — some penned as many as 20 years ago — and they speak to the struggles of the daily grind and working-class life. While this is Chillman’s first solo album, he’s a seasoned recording artist, having been a part of 14 records in all.
School’s back in session and, as always, it comes with a slew of live shows to welcome everyone back to town. If you’re up for a little rockabilly fun, you can find Calgary’s Peter and the Wolves at the Richmond Tavern Thursday. The three-piece band consists of singer-songwriter Pete Cormier (who also plays guitar and piano), Pedro Lowe on the upright bass and Dillon Pates on drums.
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".
