Busy Day at Cactus Music

Ra Ra Riot

You might as well just park yourself at Cactus Music today for all the music going on. First up, at noon, is a local four-pack of bands playing next Sunday's Rock the Boat benefit for Hurricane Ike victims at Meridian: Morgue City, Paris Green, Straightfork and Deep Ella. As soon as they get the stage clear, indie-pop Pitchfork darlings Ra Ra Riot preview tonight's Rudyard's show at 4 p.m.

Finally, the action moves outside as the annual St. Arnold's Brewery pub crawl staggers to a halt in Cactus' parking lot. On hand to salute the pie-eyed finishers will be Houston power-poppers duneTX and the McKenzies. That gets going around 7:30 p.m.

Best of all, it's all free. Even the beer. Of course. - Chris Gray
