Article excerpt

Check your calendar: Today is Friday the 13th, the traditional day of bad luck. But check again: Saturday is Valentine's Day. Forget about that one, and bad luck is going to be the least of your problems. With that in mind, here are a dozen things to do this week (one for each of the dozen roses you're getting for your sweetie, right?).

If your sweetie loves dance, it's hard to go wrong with "Riverdance." Promoters claim this is the venerable show's last tour of America. It's at the Times-Union Center tonight through Sunday. $31-$81. (904) 632-3373, www.artistseries.fccj.org.

If your sweetie loves loud, in-your-face rock music, Disturbed, Sevendust and Skindred are at Morocco Shrine Auditorium at 7 p.m. today.
