Seth Hurwitz built The Anthem, so it’s only fitting that he’d help christen the massive music venue at The Wharf. Late into Foo Fighters’ 22-song set that marked the official opening of the 6,000-person concert hall Thursday night, frontman Dave Grohl invited the venue’s co-owner onstage. “Whenever we do a show in Washington, D.C., there’s the one f—ing dude who always says, ‘Can I play drums with you on one song?’” Grohl said. “Every single time.
Hamilton Leithauser, 39, was born and raised in D.C., but he moved to New York for college in 1996 and never looked back. Still, the former singer for indie rock band The Walkmen occasionally pops back into town for shows or to visit his parents in the Cleveland Park house he grew up in.
At Sunday’s soft opening of his new concert hall The Anthem, co-owner Seth Hurwitz had a message for the fans who had filed into the 57,000-square-foot building for a sneak preview. “Congratulations and welcome to your new venue here in D.C.,” he said. “I hope you enjoy it as much as we have building it and getting it ready for you.” Based on previews of the $60 million venue at The Wharf, Hurwitz shouldn’t have to worry about that.
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".
