EAST VILLAGE, NY — The random on-stage rants of a cult punk band that preached veganism, "straight edge" living and anti-consumerism – and was famed for its hatred of stage-divers - have been set to music and will be performed as an opera. What won't be featured in the East Village show? Fugazi's actual music. "There's nothing to be gained from rehashing that stuff," Travis Just, the opera's composer, told the Guardian about the music last year.
EAST VILLAGE, NY — New street art in the East Village shows the infamous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's severed head held aloft by Kathy Griffin. The mural, completed this week by the NYC street artist SacSix, is inspired by an earlier photo shoot with Griffin where the comedian posed with a bloody, fake head of President Donald Trump. Griffin was harshly criticized for the photo shoot, and lost her gig as co-host of CNN's New Year's Eve show as a result.
LOWER EAST SIDE, NY — Landmark's Sunshine Cinema on the Lower East Side will close on Jan. 21 before it is completely demolished to make way for an office building and shops. Deadline first reported the historic theater's closing date on Tuesday. "We've known it was coming," Landmark Theatres CEO Ted Mundorff told Deadline. There will be no programming to mark the theater's final weekend, he said, because "there's nothing to celebrate."
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".
