Cactus Newsletter (April 20th-April 25th)

My Little Platter Spinners—

Best. Record. Store. Day. Ever!

Special thanks to the bands (Little Jane, Meatskin Jubilee Jug Band, This Is Boring with Hats, Dub Sultan, Black Mask, Landlocked, and Hillstomp) and everyone who came out and made this years event something to remember. We couldn’t do it without you.

Just because Record Store Day is over doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! We’ve got new vinyl coming in all the time, regular in-stores (including 1 May 19th), special events, and all the good stuff! There’s never a bad time to come visit your favorite neighborhood record shop (except when we’re closed, then it becomes breaking and entering, and that looks terrible on a resume!)

Hope to see you soon!

--Tickets now available for the film Butte: The Original “... a poignant, uplifting perspective on Butte’s history, spirit and the people who make Butte such a special place”

--On Friday morning tickets will go on sale for the legendary Steve Earle & the Dukes at the Emerson on June 13. This show will sell quickly! Tickets go on sale 10am, April 22nd! Don't delay!
*This Weeks Shows:

Seeking refuge with her parents, Umay hopes to start anew, but her family disapproves. Turmoil erupts when Umay’s family decides to return Cem to his father.” See the trailer here
