Summer is always a great time for live music, and this June is no different. We've got acts from near and far traversing many genres, including our very own day-long hip-hop music festival. So get on your dancing shoes and get ready to nod your noggin, because this month sure isn't lacking. Also, these are only a handful of this month's shows: Check out the rest on our concert calendar.

ProbCause with the Palmer Squares at the Demo
June 4
9:30 p.m. / $10

From Chicago's North Side comes ProbCause, a rapper who embraces his city's hip-hop by bridging its alternative rap scene with his own unique, experimental aesthetic. ProbCause is a true artist in his own right, currently earning an MFA in painting and animation -- you can be sure that his two arts inspire each other. Big on the local scene, he has worked with many underground rappers and groups such as Psalm One and the Save Money Crew, as well as more notable rappers like Chance the Rapper and Action Bronson.

Homeboy Sandman with the Difference Machine, Gotta Be Karim, Nato Caliph and Red Zero at Blank Space
June 5
9 p.m. / $7-$10

Though he's only been on the scene since 2007, Queens-bred Homeboy Sandman is already a fruitful rapper. Before signing to Los Angeles label Stones Throw in 2011, Sandman independently released one mixtape and three albums. In the last three years, he has released six projects under Stones Throw, his most recent, White Sands, produced entirely by London-based Paul White. Sandman's eclectic beats and themes, and his ability to spin the mundane into hip-hop gold, will definitely get your head nodding. Arrive early to catch all the acts, including St. Louis locals Gotta Be Karim, Nato Caliph and Red Zero.
