This year’s entertainment lineup at the Kern County Fair Budweiser Pavilion is filled with some real crowd-pleasing acts, but this first week’s quartet of shows is particularly funky, and spicy (we’ll get to that part later).With hours of classic rhythms sure to get you grooving in your seats, all four are legendary in their own right and if you’re familiar with Bakersfield’s tastes in music, you should already know where I’m heading.The shows are at 8 p.m. and free to enjoy with paid fair...
There’s something oddly musical about the slow, rattling swoosh of security gates downtown outside Going Underground Records as it opens for business every morning.Perhaps it's a reminder of that favorite vinyl album in your collection.
The last time I checked in with Bakersfield rapper Jeffrey Watts, the then-17-year-old Frontier senior was about put his reputation on the line with the release of his mix tape.Eager to make a name for himself in the underground rap scene, Watts put all his DIY skills to work, including collaborating with producer Tree J, known for his work with rapper Mac Miller, and promoted his work.Three years later, Watts, who continues recording and performing under the stage name 1k Watts, remains...
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".
