San Antonio’s Lil Booty Call, whose debut LP Jesus Said Run It Back dropped this summer on Warner Records, performs a form of sad-boy trap that’s won an enormous following across the country. After his track “Sailor Moon” blew up via Soundcloud, Call grabbed the attention of several record labels. A sold-out performance at the Roxy in Los Angeles landed him a deal with one of the majors. His success may confirm the notion that in hip-hop today you only need to have one song blow up on the internet to launch a career.

$15-$17, Sat Aug. 24, 9 p.m., Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 841-3771, papertigersatx.com.
