One of the most musically engaging and politically and socially relevant bands I’ve come across in a long time makes its Marin County debut Saturday night at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley. Called Making Movies, the group consists of two sets of immigrant brothers: singer-guitarist-frontman Enrique and bassist Diego Chi, both originally from Panama, and percussionist-keyboardist Juan-Carlos and drummer Andres Chaurand, whose parents immigrated from Mexico.
Guitar maestro Steve Kimock explores the outer regions of melody and sound on “Satellite City,” an adventurous new album that mixes conventional Americana with intricate jazz rock compositions laced with archival narration and sound design.
The Marin Girls Chorus celebrates its 30th anniversary with a performance on the IJ’s Lobby Lounge video concert series, one of the 30 events the chorus will participate in this year. Artistic director Grace Renaud, who took over the chorus last year, led a select group of girls 12 to 14 in a pair of vintage weather-related songs, opening with the 1905 gospel tune “The Storm is Passing Over” and following that with “Blue Skies,” written by Irving Berlin in 1926.
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".
