Lately it’s seemed like Old Home Days for Toneburst, the influential artcore junglist collective that was a locus of Boston’s underground dance scene in the mid ’90s. A week ago Thursday, the illustrious DJ /Rupture returned to town for a lecture at Harvard and an evening of globe-spanning beats and musical treats (heavy on the cumbia) at Enormous Room. Now this Friday, two other members of the Toneburst diaspora return to the fold, as DJ C and DJ RIPLEY join fellow Toneburst alum DJ FLACK (of Beat Research) as part of BOUNCEMENT 3 at the MILKY WAY. Expect a raucous night of dubstep, bassline, B-more house, and other bassbin rattlers from the four corners of the earth.

Avant-analog electronics meet experimental dance at the ICA on Friday and Saturday when local synth builder and noise musician JESSICA RYLAN performs with dancer/choreographer ALISSA CARDONE of KINO DANCE. The collaboration between Rylan and Cardone has yielded some explosively charged performances, so expect the unexpected. They’ll be appearing with LORRAINE CHAPMAN THE COMPANY and other members of Kinodance, as well as Mission of Burma’s ROGER MILLER.

Monday night, Ethiopian jazz and pop-music legend MULATU ASTATKE will give a free concert at Harvard’s Sanders Theatre accompanied by the EITHER/ORCHESTRA. Astatke, whose singularly alluring grooves percolated throughout Jim Jarmusch’s 2005 film Broken Flowers, is currently an artist-in-residence at Harvard. The concert will feature the premiere of the first part of new piece by him titled “The Yared Opera.”

DJ C + RIPLEY + DJ FLACK | Milky Way, 403-405 Centre St, Jamaica Plain | April 11 | 617.524.3740 | LORRAINE CHAPMAN THE COMPANY + KINODANCE | ICA, 100 Northern Ave, Boston | April 11-12 | 617.478.3100 | MULATU ASTATKE + EITHER/ORCHESTRA | April 14 | Sanders Theatre, 45 Quincy St, Cambridge | April 14 | 617.496.2222
