Bronze Radio Return and Air Traffic Controller On Tour

We love it when good pop music comes together. Colliding on tour right now are two of our longtime favorites, Bronze Radio Return and Air Traffic Controller. Avid OurStagers might recall Bronze Radio Return from their inclusion in our new music web series The Panel, or perhaps from the many other times they won competitions and appeared on our charts. Similarly, Air Traffic Controller earned a spotlight feature on MTV.com and have racked up more than a dozen Top 10 chart placements. Both bands have been blowing up over the past couple of years, garnering well-deserved national attention as they cross the country.

Adam Ezra Group Readying New Album With Help From Fans

2017 is already set to be a big year for Boston’s Adam Ezra Group. A recent update on the band’s site describes the many plans and moving parts that are coming together to produce a new album.

First up is the Adam Ezra solo tour, hitting living rooms across the country. 40 homes will host the “Get Folked Tour – 2017.” Couple that with a surprise live solo album, and then triple it with an impending avalanche of new demos, all tied into a crowdfunding effort that will allow the band’s fans to pick the songs, name the album, and choose the artwork…and the result will be their most ambitious album yet.

The OurStage 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s not always easy shopping for the music lover in your life. If they’re fanatical enough, they’ve generally already bought themselves the things they’re really dying for. The old fallback of a few records? Who knows what they want? Can’t go wrong with a gift card, I suppose, but what better way to say, “I dunno?” We’re here to help. Here are a few ideas for music-related gifts that might just pleasantly surprise that special, confounding consumer of music. Click photos for links.

1. The Gramovox Floating Vertical Turntable

For a while there, it was tough to find ANY new turntables. But with the resurgence of vinyl over the past 5+ years came the proliferation of turntables. Some of them are crap. The cheap-o portable ones at Target? Crap. There are luckily some good ones available from reputable manufacturers now, very much modeled on the classic turntable, with perhaps a USB connection for ripping digital copies. Then…there’s this. A whole new way to do it. Looks amazing, a piece of art, American made, with built-in speakers, and not that much more expensive than an average, quality record player.
