Citysearch Editorial Review.
For more than 30 years audiophiles have united to peruse the latest tunes at Houston’s premier independent music store. In the newest location, a stage by the substantial CD stacks hosts far-flung and local bands most weekends--shows and St. Arnold’s brew provided gratis. Don’t miss the Record Ranch in back, where guest DJs spin sets for patrons picking through plastic-wrapped and bargain-binned vinyl. Other booty includes books, box sets, T-shirts, posters, DVDs, sundry souvenirs and rarities for the rabid collector. Behind the counter, sorting enormous piles of wares, the expert staff is ready to advise, assist and proliferate indie spirit. Whether you’re into Pink Floyd or Neon Indian, Dinosaur Jr. or John Mayer, Cactus has you covered.
