Houston Press' Description

Frequent in-store performances turn Houston's roots-music retail haven into something akin to nirvana. Not only is there never a cover, but the beer is always free. It bears repeating: There's never a cover, and the beer is always free. Over the years everyone from Townes Van Zandt to the Ramones have taken the stage. It's new renaissance and location has brought the likes of Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel and Justin Townes Earle playing day sets for early crowds, while the weekly guest DJ's in the Record Ranch never disappoint.

    Houston record lovers went into deep depression when this indie shop abruptly shut down in 2006. But it was reincarnated better than ever to a new location in Shepherd Plaza in 2007.
