The annual take-over-most-of-downtown musical festival includes acts from around the world, effectively reminding audiences how narrow their musical experiences have been. The fact that you probably haven’t heard of any of them shouldn’t keep you from experiencing this smartly curated fest, where you can sample string music from Sweden, tar and setar tunes from Iran, throat singers from Russia, and much more.
There’s been a surge of late in Thai restaurants popping up on the Indianapolis perimeter. Recent additions include the cafeteria-style Phaya Thai Street Food on Post Road and the order-at-the-counter Eat Thai at Traders Point (taking over from the spot formerly occupied by Tom + Chee). And for sit-down and table service, there’s Manee Thai Cuisine IN (2274 W. 86th St., 317-991-4930), which fills the real estate hole left by Borel’s Cajun & Creole Cookery.
You can easily take in the pleasures of “La Cage aux Folles” (through Oct. 1 at The Studio Theatre) without any appreciation of its historical importance. But in the midst of the laughs and applause at the charming, well-sung revival by Actors Theatre of Indiana, I couldn’t help but flash back to the early 1980s when “La Cage” took Broadway by storm. What now is accepted as a feel-good—even old-fashioned—musical was, then, a huge risk.
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".
