Light week for announcements while venues finalize their summer schedules, but there are some gems here: Super Jam 4 will blow through Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on June 12--it's the first St. Louis date for Wiz Khalifa (though the Black and Yellow rapper was here in March for a Hot 104.1 meet n' greet), and he's joined by Ludacris, Waka Flocka Flame and Travis Porter, the asshole/genius responsible for branding our grey matter with "Make it Rain." George Clinton bring his funky ways and covetable dreads to the Ambassador with Parliament Funkadelic. And the dolls from Those Darlins never make us wait too long for their return (they played the Pageant in February with Old 97's); they're back at Off Broadway September 16.
