Joe Ely: The Texas songwriter is a renaissance man even among his roots-rocking brethren, touching on everything from Tex-Mex and honky-tonk to punk and rockabilly in a career that spans more than four decades. He’s still one of the most dynamic performers you’ll ever see, providing a soundtrack for dancing, brawling and just about everything in between,  9 p.m. Friday-Saturday at FitzGerald’s, 6615 W. Roosevelt Rd., Berwyn, Ill.,  $20; ticketweb.com.
