In 1999, Blink-182 released the album "Enema of the State," featuring the Tom DeLonge-penned song "Aliens Exist." It opens with these lines: "Hey, Mom, there's something in the back room/Hope it's not the creatures from above/You used to read me stories/As if my dreams were boring/We all know conspiracies are dumb.”Nearly two decades on, with Delonge's unveiling of his To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, we’re beginning to unravel just how prescient DeLonge’s song was.
In August, we reported on Quartyard’s nail-biter of a position: one final public hearing to determine the fate of East Village’s popular beer garden and music venue. Now, supporters can all breathe a sigh of relief, because #YourCityBlock will be up and running before you know it. On Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Quartyard will hold its Groundbreaking celebration at its new location: 1301 Market St.
In June, the city of Solana Beach sued the Del Mar Fairgrounds over the planned construction of a new concert venue. Now, it looks like both parties have buried the hatchet. Despite some major objections from Solana Beach residents concerning increased traffic and noise pollution, the Del Mar Fairgrounds and the city of Solana Beach have reached an agreement to allow the construction of the new indoor music venue to move ahead.

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".
