After an angelic performance by Weyes Blood, the stage was set for Father John Misty to take the night to the next level. Coming out to the title track of Pure Comedy, and backdropped by intense caricatures, FJM had us gripped on every word. He holds a fine balance between eccentric vagabond and absolute-showman, with undertones of ‘tongue-in-cheek’-imagery, throughout the entire performance.
Once Royal Blood had successfully warmed up the crowd, it was time for the main event: Queens of the Stone Age! These staples of modern rock music have been kicking-a** and taking names for over 20 years, and are not looking back. For their latest record, Villains, they teamed up with producer Mark Ronson. While Ronson is known more for his pop collaborations, Ronson helped to take QOTSA’s latest record in a new direction, while still maintaining their original essence.
Billie Joe Armstrong said it best, “No racism, no sexism, no fascism, no homophobia…tonight is about freedom!”And free we were, to dance, to sing and to love whoever we wanted, as Green Day was back in Toronto on August 18th at the Budweiser Stage, to spread their message to the people: Whoever you are, you belong. Catfish & the Bottlemen kicked off the night for the diehards in attendance.
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".
