May 19….Texas Songwriter: Bruce Robison In Concert with The Back Porch Band - Bruce Robison has been making music professionally for decades. He still discusses his craft with so much enthusiasm he sounds almost like a kid raving about superheroes. That infectious energy is evident in every note of his new album, Bruce Robison & the Back Porch Band. “Writing is where it all starts for me,” he explains. “Whether it’s my writing, or songs I want to do with somebody else. I love the mechanics of it; how simple it can be.” Keeping it simple — and organic — was the guiding principle behind the latest album, a collection of Robison originals, co-writes and covers that capture country’s most beloved stylistic elements: good-time, lighthearted romps (“Rock and Roll Honky Tonk Ramblin’ Man”; “Paid My Dues”) and wistful, sometimes bittersweet ballads (“Long Time Coming”; “Still Doin’ Time”). But even the Who’s “Squeezebox” shows up, in a lively version dressed with cajun fiddle by Warren Hood and acoustic guitar and harmonies by Robison’s wife, Kelly Willis. Special guest opener for this show is local favorite Danny Cadra. Box office open daily 3:00-5:30 pm or call (806) 762-3233 or order online at Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave: 7:30 p.m.

May 20….’80s Flashback: MTV Rock Vault, Vol. 2 - Rock 'n' roll entered the television mainstream in late 1981 with the launch of the all-music video channel MTV...short, of course, for "Music Television". The cable channel quickly became the hottest marketing platform in the history of popular music...and made stars out of unknown bands virtually overnight. Unknowns became hot-selling stars....previously popular radio stars became video superstars...and some, like Michael Jackson, went global on a scale like no one before or since. It was truly a phenomenon that heralded a whole new era for the music industry and, even more significantly, pop CULTURE, as a whole. Now, the Cactus looks back at that seminal moment in history - when unknowns like Billy Idol, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Bryan Adams, Survivor, The Stray Cats, Prince and scores more burst into stardom through the medium of Music Television. Join our amazing band - The Rhythm Machine - along with a great lineup of Cactus vocalists including Jason Fellers, Avery Guyear, Craig Elliott, Bethany Longoria and Amber Pennington - for this time-trip back to the '80s. You'll hear the biggest hits from the video era in this special, live music production. Reserved floor seats $20; standard balcony seats $15. Tickets now on sale! Box office open daily 3:00-5:30 pm or call (806) 762-3233 or order online at Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave: 7:30 p.m.

May 21….Whisperin' Bill Anderson: Legendary Songwriter and 55 Years on the Opry! - "If you want to get someone's attention...just . WHISPER." Bill Anderson has been using that philosophy for over fifty years to capture the attention of millions of country music fans around the world, en route to becoming a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and one of the most popular, most enduring entertainers of our time. He’s known, in fact as “Whispering Bill,” a nickname hung on him years ago as a result of his breathy voice and his warm, soft approach to singing a country song. His credentials, however, shout his prominence: One of the most awarded songwriters in the history of country music, a million-selling recording artist many times over, television game show host, network soap opera star, spokesman for a nationwide restaurant chain, and a consummate onstage performer. His back-up group, The Po’ Folks Band, has long been considered one of the finest instrumental and vocal groups in the business. Cathy Whitten and the Hot Country Band will open the show, followed by the legendary songwriter and consummate performer himself. A night of stories (a couple focusing squarely on Bill's connection to Lubbock) will be part of the evening. Don't miss this fantastic,classic country show - witha special EARLY start time of 7:00 pm. For tickets, box office open Monday through Friday 3:00-5:30 pm or call (806) 762-3233 or order online at Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave: 7:00 p.m.
