The sound of electric drills, clanging metal — general destruction really — started escaping the old, green load-in doors at Tampa Theatre on Monday morning. The nearly century-old downtown Tampa icon — which has hosted more than its fair share of historic concerts, including a 1979 set from The Police — began a $6 million major renovation in the last week, and fans can expect new paint and plaster in the lobby, new windows, plus upgrades to drainage and electrical items. Also on the agenda?
Beloved and bewitching Tampa emcee Diana Hardy is fresh off of a European tour and already staging a one-woman show at Tampa's Stageworks Theatre on Saturday, but she is getting a little behind the scenes help from a couple of dudes who consistently make other Bay area artists look good, too. "Initially, I thought about doing the show with tracks, but nothing beats the element of live music," Hardy — aka Dynasty — told CL.
Evidence of Bruno Mars’ mass appeal is all over the Billboard charts. The 32-year-old pop superstar has sold over 170 million singles (and 26 million albums) worldwide. He’s a curly-haired Hawaiian with a hankering to hip-thrust, a holdover from the pre-streaming days, and in 2013 his charisma earned him 155 sold-out dates on the Moonshine Jungle tour.
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".
