SURREY — With a wide smile slightly hidden by a shaggy beard and shoulder-length hair, Daniel Sveinson ripped into a solo and, in a quick mid-riff move, playfully punched the arm of fellow guitarist Eric Gross. The guys were clearly having a gas, and the crowd at the Hindenburg, a small club in Vancouver’s Gastown district, jumped in time with the electric prog-funk the quartet rocked that warm September night.
SURREY — Backers of all-new Surrey City Orchestra are taking their time with the plans – in adagio style, musically speaking. Plans for the professional ensemble were revealed in July 2016 when the city’s Cultural Development Advisory Committee was presented a 15-page business plan by Ellen Farrugia, a North Delta-based musician. She and others aim to have an Surrey-branded orchestra perform a debut season of five concerts starting in the fall of 2019, with a startup budget of $200,000.
SURREY — The show will go on, despite theatre costumes, props and sets getting dumped from a stolen trailer. The stuff belonged to Royal Canadian Theatre Company, which is busy preparing a pantomime show for the stage at Surrey Arts Centre, among other local theatres, in December. Overnight Wednesday (Nov. 15), a trailer full of theatre-related things was stolen from the driveway of the Brookswood-area home of Ellie King, the company’s artistic director.
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".
