For three years, fans have packed concerts at Battery Park at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Few concertgoers realize that the stage starts as a parking lot. A crew of 30 people spend about a week transforming the bare concrete into a stage crowded with amps, lights and equipment. It starts by setting six metal posts on preset concrete pads. They'll provide the super-structure to raise the roof over the stage. Then, section by section, the crew builds the stage to the artist's specifications.
Saturday night's Country Music Festival at the the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will feature five artists. The stage they'll play on is the most visible part of the show. But, there's a place where the artists hang out before they hit the stage that very few outsiders get to see. It's the "green room". It's a place where the performer can relax before, or after, their performance. The "green room", at the Hard Rock, is just a few steps off of the Battery Park stage.
Wednesday night, thousands of Siouxlanders lined the streets of downtown Sioux City for the Big River-Cade Parade. This year, River-Cade teamed up with Sioux City's Big Parade, after weather forced that parade's cancellation in June. The 2017 Grand Marshal was Mikki Paul of North Sioux City. KTIV was among more than 100 entries in the parade.
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".
