Carlton Zeus
Friday, May 5

It seemed like Carlton Zeus sort of came out of nowhere a few years ago when he dropped the track “Sharpie Solo”.  Since then, the rapper has become a recognized name in the region. From official SXSW showcases to opening for artists like Schoolboy Q and Big Sean, the San Antonio-based rapper has been turning heads with his high quality track production and vigorous flow. It’s not all just good marketing and production, though. Carlos Servando Cavazos AKA Carlton Zeus, is actually a talented wordsmith. His latest album Three Strikes You’re In sounds like it was made for radio, sure, but that doesn’t eclipse the stories he manages to tell. From start to finish Three Strikes You’re In is a solid sophomore album that pairs underground flow with high caliber production. With Aj Hernz, Carne Asada, Colour Red, Peris Young, Celina Jennée, 9pm, $12-$15, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks. – CC
