T-Baby, the Detroit rapper whose low-dough video for the provocative “It’s So Cold in the D” is netting high hits on the Internet, brings her rhymes to Pontiac Friday (Oct. 10) for a show at the Pike Room in the Crofoot, 1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac. Mighty Joe Young also is on the bill. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5. Call (248) 858-9333 or visit www.thecrofoot. com.

The Mega 80s are taking a break from their usual weekend gig at Ferndale’s Magic Bag, but the group’s two spin-off bands are taking over Friday (Oct. 10). The Square Pegz is a tribute to ’80s female rockers such as Pat Benatar, Madonna, Scandal, Cyndi Lauper and more, while X Generation pays homage to the ’90s, with a flashier light show to go with it. The Magic Bag is at 22920 Woodward Ave. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $5. Call (248) 544-3030 or visit www.themagicbag.com.

A batch of Detroit bands will be rocking — and rolling — at the Barack ’N’ Bowl fundraiser Friday (Oct. 10) at the Garden Bowl and Magic Stick, 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit. The four-hour event starts at 7 p.m. and features performances by the Satin Peaches, Scarlet Oaks, Rogue Satellites, Pewter Club, the Smashed Windows and JSB Squad. Tickets are $25 ($12 for students), with proceeds going to the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama. Call (313) 833-9700 or visit www.majesticdetroit.com.

Callahan’s goes country in Auburn Hills on Saturday (Oct. 11)when the awardwinning local group Redhill kicks up its spurs at the popular bar and grill. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. Callahan’s is located at 2105 South Blvd. Call (248) 858-9508 or visit www.atcallahans.com.
