* Callahan's Neighborhood Bar & Grill in Auburn Hills will rock with two special shows on Saturday (Feb. 7) to raise money for the Spencer Bell Memorial Fund.

Both shows, an all-ages at 3 p.m. and a 21-plus at 7 p.m., will include performances by 100 Monkeys, which features "Twilight" actor Jackson Rathbone and other friends Bell made while attending the Interlochen Arts Academy, and Tin Tin Can from Chicago. The late show will add the Stevedores, a group Bell was working with in Madison, Wisc., at the time of his death, as well as Detroit blues groups the Eric Goebel Band, the Christy Howard Band and the Billy Davis Rhythm Machine. Callahan's is located at 2105 South Blvd. Tickets for each show are $10. Call (248) 858-9508 or visit www.atcallahans.com.
