Maggie Rogers: “A friend of mine said that festivals are an awesome excuse to be the loudest version of yourself” JACK HENRY BRIDGLAND/WMA/VEVOMaggie Rogers has never played a festival before, which is no surprise given that she’s only 23 and is barely out of music school. The freckled, flaxen-haired singer-songwriter from Maryland is about to break her duck in spectacular fashion, though, when she plays Glastonbury on Saturday. Whatever happened to building up slowly?
You can see why the organisers of Meltdown, the music and arts festival at the Southbank Centre in London, asked MIA to be their guest curator this year. The Anglo-Sri Lankan singer, real name Mathangi Arulpragasam, may not have the prestige of some of her predecessors in the role, who include David Bowie, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith and Jarvis Cocker, but she punches way above her weight in terms of publicity-generating chutzpah.
Frank Pugliese and Melissa James Gibson, the showrunners of House of Cards, were in the White House when they heard that Donald Trump had won the presidential election. Not the real White House, but a mocked-up version on the Maryland set of the hit Netflix show, where shooting was under way for the fifth series, which will be premiered on Tuesday. “It’s very realistic,” Pugliese says. “It looks like the White House.
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".
