CLUBS & DANCE NIGHTS

MY SO CALLED 90S NIGHT Every Friday at Common Ground’s long-running dance night, get down to Ace of Base, No Doubt, Nirvana, and other ’90s sensations as DJ Phatmike spins tunes from the decade that brought us “Beverly Hills, 90210’’ and pogs.

TOMMY TRASH The Australian-born electro superstar has been blowing up recently, pumping clubs full of his signature throbbing, aggressive mixes. Boston’s own Bamboora opens. The night is hosted by the folks behind EDM Wednesdays, who make it their mission to bring electronic music artists to the Boston area. March 14, 10 p.m. 21+ Tickets: $30. Splash Ultra Lounge. 617-426-6397. www.splash-boston.com

DIRTY WATER SALOON Remember back in middle school when you were forced to learn line dances during gym class? We promise, this is better. Every Tuesday night, brush up on your line dancing, country-Western two-step, and West Coast swing skills. Music choices run the gamut, from Lady Gaga and the Pussycat Dolls, to Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley. Yee-haw! March 13, 7-10 p.m. 21+ Tickets: $5. Milky Way Lounge. 617-524-3740, www.milkywayjp.com

HOSPITALITY Hospital Records and Embrace have teamed up to bring a couple of drum and bass acts to the Middle East Downstairs for a night of syncopated breakbeats and sweaty dancing. The precocious, Belgium-based Netsky (a.k.a. Boris Daenen) will take his time on the stage alongside prolific Welsh producer High Contrast (a.k.a. Lincoln Barrett). March 14, 8 p.m. 18+ Tickets: $15-$20. Middle East Downstairs. 617-864-3278, www.mideastclub.com

NICOLE CAMMORATA

COMEDY

B.U.M.P. The acronym stands for “Boston’s Unscripted Musical Project,’’ one of Improv Asylum’s late-night offerings. The players improvise a Broadway-style, one-act musical Thursdays in March after the main-stage show. March 8, 10 p.m. $10, or free with early-show ticket. Improv Asylum, 216 Hanover St. 617-263-6887, www.improvasylum.com

SINBAD Sinbad has been playing Boston since the 1980s boom days, so he’s familiar with local audiences, and he tends to put on mostly all-ages-friendly marathon shows. It’s not unusual for him to go for two hours. March 9, 7:30 p.m. $25-$39. Wilbur Theatre. 866-448-7849, www.thewilburtheatre.com

BOB MARLEY Maine’s best-known comedy export has played some big rooms, so this Bull Run show is a good chance for fans to see him in a more intimate setting. March 9, 8 p.m. $25. Bull Run Restaurant, 215 Great Road, Shirley. 978-425-4311, www.bullrunrestaurant.com

MAZ JOBRANI Some of us still hold a five-year-old grudge against ABC for canceling “The Knights of Prosperity,’’ which helped bring Jobrani to national attention. He hasn’t suffered, though, and will record a new comedy special in Stockholm next week. March 10, 7 p.m. $30.50-$40.50. Wilbur Theatre. 866-448-7849, www.thewilburtheatre.com
