Hookahs and DJs? Consider it the Reese's peanut butter cup of the muy mellow set. On Thursday nights at the Hooked on Hookah lounge (124 E. Cheyenne Road), you can plop your weary self down, puff on any number of exotic and fruity tobacco blends and enjoy the smooth spinnings of DJ Skip Ripkin. Don't worry the smoke that clings to your clothes actually will smell good, not like Uncle Larry's TV room. Hooked is open from 7:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., though the music probably will start at 10:30. Cover is $5; call 630-7024 to find out more.

Bummed Aerosmith fans now have more time to save for the $55-to-$125 tickets to their Pepsi Center show. The band cancelled their Jan. 30 date because of illness, and rescheduled for April 13. Tickets for the Jan. 30 show will be honored in April. Refunds, however, are available at the point of purchase, and new tickets can be bought at ticketmaster.com, 520-9090 or Ticketmaster outlets.

Ten years ago, aura reader and psychic Carol Skylark realized that doing public musical aura readings might help audiences open up to the psychic realm. Today, she's joined often by David Miller, an improvisational musician who plays the guitar with his hands and the keyboard with his feet. Skylark responds to questions and her perceptions, taking everyone on the same aural aura journey as the receiver of the reading. Trippy. Free readings will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, at Quixote's (2637 Welton St., Denver). Call Carol at 970/225-6981 for more.
