Deep Ellum's The Door, which opened in '98, is the first Dallas music venue to host many now-famous rock musicians, including Fall Out Boy, Paramore and Brand New. It has overseen decades of change and growth in the neighborhood. But now The Door is packing its bags. Owner and talent buyer Russell David Hobbs says it will move out of Deep Ellum by the end of the year because of a rent increase. “They doubled our rent,” Hobbs says.
They say that those who can't do, teach. But former Type O Negative and current Danzig drummer Johnny Kelly, who recently moved to Frisco, can do both. He's charging $50 per hour for drummers of all experience levels. “We just moved here, and if anyone is interested in doing it, hit me up and we will fit it in," he tells the Dallas Observer. "We can have some fun.”Kelly taught at a School of Rock in New Jersey before moving to Texas in July.
After Sound on Sound lost a major investor, talent buyer Graham Williams was forced to pull the plug on the second year of the Austin music festival just five weeks before 73 acts were scheduled to descend upon the Sherwood Forest. “We are extremely saddened to announce today that Sound On Sound Fest 2017 is being cancelled,” read a Friday press release sent by festival organizers. “This is one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make.
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".
