Pick any musical instrument, and you’ll find an endless stream of jokes about it, whether it’s the tuba, the accordion or even the rather dignified cello.

A couple of samples:

Q: How do you keep your violin from getting stolen?
A: Put it in a cello case.

Q: What’s the difference between a violin and a cello?
A: The cello burns longer.
(Or: The cello holds more beer.)

Dirty Cello, a band that definitely has fun with the instrument, will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 25, at the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center, 209 N. Cloverdale Blvd., in Cloverdale.

Led by cellist Rebecca Roudman, the group includes guitarist Jason Eckl, bassist Paul Smith-Stewart and drummer Anthony Petrocchi.

Expect a lively mix of classical, soul, blues, folk and Gyspy music.

Admission: $8 in advance; $10 at the door.

Tickets: cloverdaleperformingarts.com; Mail Center, 207A N. Cloverdale Blvd., next door to the theater.

This is the second concert at the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center, which has been devoted primarily to live theater so far. The first, featuring the  Brothers Comatose and David Luning, sold out earlier this month.
