Before they released one of the most celebrated albums of the new millennium, Interpol were just four guys hustling on the New York City club circuit. "It takes a lot to maintain your existence when you're a young band and money is scarce and rehearsal spaces are crummy and pricey and broken-down," guitarist Daniel Kessler tells the Daily News. In 1997, Kessler met Paul Banks and Carlos Dengler at NYU and asked them to join the band he'd started with drummer Greg Drudy.
Sometimes music is at its best when it's stripped down to the bare essentials. On Tuesday night, David Gray and Alison Krauss, two artists from two different parts the world, played two very different sets. Nevertheless, they were tied together by a shared peaceful sensibility and a proclivity to keep things simple. Mr. Gray, who hails from England, took the stage first, choosing to open his set alone playing a baby grand piano.
In its second year, The Meadows Music & Arts Festival upped the ante with a stacked lineup that came through with solid, memorable performances at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens. Top-tier hometown talent dominated this year, with more artists representing the five boroughs — and beyond — than any other major festival in 2017. And whether it was LL Cool J bringing out A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip and Jarobi White along with D.M.C.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
