Close Back to Cactus


We are proud to present our first in-store performance in over two years. Tody Castillo is one of our favorite local artists and his albums still resonate with us.  His self-titled debut held the record as top-selling local release at our store for many, many years.  We are thrilled to have him back on the Cactus stage to celebrate the release of his superb new album, Old Rodriguez.  We hope you will join us to enjoy a full-set by the artist and to help celebrate Record Store Day.


About Tody Castillo

Fatherhood, cross-country road trips, wartime stories passed from one generation to the next, and philosophical skatepark conversations stitch together the fabric of Tody Castillo’s third full-length offering and 2022 debut album for Strolling Bones Records, Old Rodriguez. On his first body of work in 13 years, the Kingsville-born and Austin-based singer and songwriter ponders the past, present, and future across ten tracks. He shares his story through eloquently crafted songs steeped in rock, folk, and heartland traditions.

“There are a lot of coming-of-age themes,” he states. “I’m thinking of what I value the most. Even though I’m busy, I enjoy being at home with my family. I like skateboarding. I’m thinking of what it means to be a patriarch in a society where there are expectations for men to bring in the money. I’m remembering my grandparents and other meaningful moments. It’s my life.”
