Sound Exchange

Map & Directions 1846 Richmond Ave.
Houston, TX 77098


Houston Press' Description

It's a record store by day, but the employees lose their High Fidelity music-snob attitudes and reveal themselves as the scene boosters they really are by night, when they open up the old house to live music after retail hours. From death metal to free jazz, Sound Exchange hosts performances that are always mind-expanding, far beyond the mainstream and that can't be found anywhere else in the city. Or, as they put it in their own words, "Presenting unlistenable music to an uncaring public for 25 years. Does your band make people run from the room? Book a show with us." (BYOB)

    I used to shop there religiously but not so much lately. In the past Cactus had a better selection but since they moved to that rat hole Sound Exchange is kickin' their ass on selection.

    All the best vinyl I ever got, always willing to bargain. Super informative and always will point in the right direction to get your hard to find vinyl.

    Great assortment of new & pre-loved vinyl. Check out the hidden gems in the bargain basement (head straight to the back) for $2.
