Heights Vinyl was established after Craig Brown decided to create a place where music lovers could gather to talk and share music. It was named the "Best Vinyl Store" in 2012 by the Houston Press, and Craig enjoys educating his customers about the various genres. The shop is also one of the country's largest sellers of analog vintage equipment, and the selection includes turntables, speakers, and receivers.
With more than thirty years of service, Cactus Music is the oldest independent music store in Houston. The shop is often a "Best of Houston" winner, and it's known for its friendly staff and in-store concerts. The large inventory offers something for everyone, and musicians usually take to the stage several times a month.
The Sound Exchange opened in 1977, and over the years, it has changed locations several times. Today it calls a small two-story house on Richmond Avenue home, and the staff is knowledgeable about the various albums and can also fix turntables. At times, the Sound Exchange hosts bands, and past performers include Three Day Stubble and Silver Scooter.
