Mr. Moonbeam continues his ongoing one-man band whistle-stop tour of the twilit heavens of yesteryear when playing The Siren's Song tonight at 9 p.m. (price TBA). Expect mini-flute melodies, pitch-pipe cowboy vocals and well-plucked space oddities tuned to the vibe of Santo & Johnny's "Sleep Walk." The soundtrack-rock trio The Mojave Green brings its Old West panorama partitas to the party, too.
The Outer Space has a fun early Friday show for you at 7 p.m. with the heart-tugging rock chug of Philly's Radiator Hospital, local folk act Julio Perdido and the synth-pop sounds of Eureka City Councilmember and multitalented polymath Natalie Arroyo's act, Smilebright ($7).
Given how eye-poppingly weird our reality has become, it's hard to freak people out with a short film these days. Still, the good folks who've assembled the Druid Underground Film Festival are giving it a shot again with their 10th annual collection on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 7 and 10 p.m. at the Miniplex ($10). It's an evening of low-tech, high-risk, unconventional and subversive short films, and it's bound to get strange.
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".
