There’s a careful balance that must be struck to cross the kind of musical bridges that Carlton Zeus is crossing. His unique combo of Mexicano cumbia with modern hip-hop and rock beats are punctuated with vocals so smooth, they can only be described as seductive. So seductive, in fact, that they’ll find a way to slither into your pants and move your hips to the rhythm.
Oh, were you planning on sitting still while listening to his 2017 album, “Three Strikes You’re In"? Well that’s too bad, because these beats were made for some dirty dancing. Zeus’s undeniable on-stage charisma is even more apparent when you watch him live. At 8 p.m. on Aug 12, you can catch him getting down at Sam’s Burger Joint along with special guests AJ Hernz, Colour Red, and Wayne Holtz. Full disclosure, our music writer Chris Conde will be performing as well.
Whether you’re going for the burgers or the beats, Carlton Zeus is sure to put on a show you won’t forget (that is, if you don’t wind up drinking too much cerveza).
Saturday, August 12, $10-$60, 8pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., (210) 223-2830, samsburgerjoint.com
