Spending a half-century in folk showbiz is no mean feat, but New England legend Tom Rush, the best interpreter a singer/songwriter could hope for, is no ordinary fellow. He’s the guy who first introduced listeners to the work of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and other greats, and he’s always been convincing on blues numbers, too. A stellar live performer, his forthcoming CD/DVD package “Tom Rush Celebrates 50 Years of Music” spans his career, including a fresh recording of his own resilient gem, “No Regrets” and guest appearances by old friends David Bromberg and Jonathan Edwards and new pal Don Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. (7:30 p.m. Thu., Cedar Cultural Center, $30.) Tom Surowicz

JAZZ

The Twin Cities’ most ambitious trad jazz ensemble, the Southside Aces celebrate their 10th anniversary with a party on the south side of Minneapolis — where else? — and a rather unexpected new recording that gives Lady Gaga’s mega-hit “Bad Romance” a New Orleans classic jazz makeover. It works so well you’ll wonder why the Lady G version didn’t have a liquid clarinet solo, or some bragging brass licks. The first 100 attendees receive a free download card for it, but even if you show up fashionably late, it only costs one buck, 10 cents for each of those 10 happy years. (8 p.m. Thu., Minneapolis Eagles Club, $5.) Surowicz
