You might think you’ve heard all of Sean Paul’s dancehall hits from their heavy rotation on Top 40 radio. “Temperature.” “Like Glue.” “Baby Boy.” “We Be Burning.” “Touch the Sky.” But for every song you remember grooving to in the mid-’00s, there are three more of his hits, full of his trademark sing-talking à la Christopher Walken in Peter Pan Live, that you might’ve forgotten. But don’t worry: If you ever went to a school dance, even the most obscure of Sean Paul’s beats will douse you with a delightful wave of nostalgia. Just pretend Echostage is your high school gym. Sean Paul performs at 9 p.m. at Echostage, 2135 Queens Chapel Road NE. $31. (202) 503-2330. echostage.com.
