Especially if you’re a member of Saskatchewan-bred retro rock act The Sheepdogs. “Beer and rock ’n’ roll — that’s just a no-brainer, as far as pairings go,” says frontman Ewan Currie. “Some music is maybe a soft seater and a glass of wine and we’re more a beer and a party.”Local fans will get a whole lotta the latter this Saturday, as the band will be headlining the Big Rock Barn Burner at the local brewery, playing alongside Scenic Route To Alaska and The Silkstones.
Welcome to the Scene In the Wild Podcask, a podcast on — but not limited to — the Calgary cultural scene and recorded live in the Wild Rose Brewery Taproom. We hope to showcase some of the amazing and talented people that make this city and region their home, what we here at theYYSCENE are all about. Our first Podcask featuring legend Ian Tyson was recorded on Aug. 15, 2017 and produced by Lorrie Matheson at his Arch Audio Studio in Inglewood.
Those who have followed Spoon over their nine-album, almost 25-year career know that expectations when it comes to the Austin quartet are foolish things. Not that you shouldn’t always expect them to bring it, expect them to please, but that when it comes to guessing what direction they’ll take you in — or rather, take themselves in — that’s pure folly. Take their latest release Hot Thoughts, for example.
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".
