STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Space-rock band Bye Bye Empire touches down at Rookie's Sports Bar & Grill Friday night for its first headlining show. The S.I. quartet -- Brian Buchanan, Shaun Gold, Andrew Paladino and Mike Maldarelli -- will debut its first single, "Around," at the Arden Heights venue. Billed as "a surf rock-tinged tune," the track is set to be featured on an upcoming EP: "The Law of Large Numbers," which drops in late September.
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Several hundred hip-hop fans gathered at South Beach Park late Sunday afternoon to take in a free performance by GZA/The Genius, a founding member of "Shaolin" heroes, the Wu-Tang Clan. And while none of the other members of the legendary crew came out for a cameo, the highly-respected wordsmith, backed by a live band, spit his way through a nearly hour-long set featuring a medley of cuts from his solo discography, sprinkled with a few Wu-related surprises.
BY SCOTT R. AXELROD | In a tilting-at-caffeinated-windmills scenario that’s destined to end with a sparkly new Starbucks rising from a boarded-up 10,000 -square-foot space on Avenue A, dozens turned out last Thurs., July 13, to speak up and speak out against having yet another outlet of the national commercial coffee chain drip its way into the East Village. The so-called “formula-style” coffee shop is slated for 125 St. Mark’s Place, at St. Mark’s Place and Avenue A.
@Cagewm any way to contact you directly? Longtime fan and journalism student in NYC. Writing a piece on the legacy of A Clockwork Orange. Would really like to include a couple of quotes from you if possible. Thank you.
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".
