Record Shopping at Cactus Music
Support Houston’s local music scene at Cactus Music, the city’s oldest record store. For over 30 years, customers come here to spend hours perusing the collection of new and used vinyl and CDs that range in genres from indie rock to jazz and R&B. The space supports area artists with free, in-house performances on its small stage (and complimentary Saint Arnold’s beer to boot). In addition to mini-concerts, Cactus Music frequently hosts album release listening parties. In the age of the internet and MP3s, it’s refreshing to find a place where aficionados can discover and celebrate music as a community.
