[CHAMBER MUSIC GET-DOWN] Portland’s legion of genre-bending cellists has been making cross-country rounds this spring, but it’s back in town for the annual two-night Extreme Dance Party at the Doug Fir. Expect a high-energy smorgasbord of local cellists, musicians and singers covering the likes of Missy Elliot and Paul Simon, along with nods to Jay-Z and Kanye West, all drawn from the group’s 2012 release, Homage, which is basically an instrumental hip-hop record. Charmingly enough, PCP has amended some of rap’s not-quite chamber-ready track names into titles such as “Ninjas in Paris” or “That’s My Sandwich.” But, politically correct nomenclature aside, the Extreme Dance Party is strictly for those looking to get down with some funky string instrumentalists. PCP frontman Doug Jenkins will head up this fifth-anniversary event featuring Janet Weiss and Rebecca Cole on rhythm and guest singers including Jolie Holland, Corin Tucker, John Brophy and Stephfon Bartee.
