If you’ve ever wanted the skinny on astrology, tarot readings, palmistry, clairvoyant readings or aura portraits, this is the place to go — especially since no one will be there who can judge you for it. There’s free lectures all day, massages and something called “green drinks.” The Collegian is not responsible for the contents of these beverages.

The Fort Collins Rockhounds Club is putting on the 52nd annual Gem and Mineral Show at the Ranch in Loveland, because everyone likes shiny objects regardless of how long it’s been since they were a toddler. The focus is agates and calcite this year; get pumped.

What: Blasted Canyons with Wax Idols, Burnt Ones and Electric Shoes
When: Tuesday, March 19 at 8 p.m.
Where: Hodi’s Half Note
Cost: $5, +$5 for under 21

How many bands can be squeezed into Hodi’s? Probably fewer than there will be fans. For $5 ($10 if you’re under 21 as punishment for being babies), you get to see four different bands perform.

What: Winchester Holiday w/ Sweet Virginia and the Blue Ribbons
Where: Road 34
When: Saturday, March 16 at 9 p.m.
Cost: $5, 21+

A rock band “family” takes the stage at Road 34 this Saturday, so head on down and get started early on the whole St. Patrick’s Day thing. Bring your bike.
