For those in the know, the High Life House has been a Springs home for local and national underground bands to gather, a haven in which to watch a show while possibly catching a respiratory infection from the dank basement/venue. Alas, no more. Because the house's most recent tenants are moving out, the last HLH show will take place Friday, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m., and will feature a crudload of bands, including Witchita-based Ricky Fitts, Lachance, Arms for Hands, and Pueblo's Autokinoton. All this and fond memories for only $5. Check out highlifehouse.com for more.

Hear the cries of anguish from classic rock lovers! The moans of despair from those who fancy latex bondage gear! The Don Henley and Nine Inch Nails shows at the World Arena both were cancelled, and within a day of each other. Word of the cancellations, says Dot Lischick, General Manager at the World Arena, came down from the House of Blues. Justin Levy, HOB's Marketing Director, didn't return phone calls for comment, though his press release indicated "scheduling conflicts" for NIN and, well, nothing for Don Henley. NIN still will play the Pepsi Center on Oct. 5. Guess ol' Trent's not too busy for that venue. Harumph.

Pueblo's ambient post-hardcore screamo band (their description), runsfasterscared, left Monday for a weeklong tour of Arizona and California. The band was looking to stay on the road a bit longer, but met a few booking challenges. They should be back around Aug. 9 and will resume rocking house shows and venues in the Springs and Pueblo soon thereafter.

This week, catch The Summerlife (ne The Fallout) with leer43 and Funeral Forgotten on Aug. 5 at Classics (5943 Delmonico Drive). Plenty of metal for the heshers on Aug. 7, as In Death We Rise plays Darkside (2106 E. Platte Ave.) and Farewell to Arms, Edifice and Elision rock out Aug. 8 at The Underground (110 N. Nevada Ave.). Elsewhere, Prefuse 73 hits the Fox Theatre (foxtheatre.com) in Boulder on Sept. 8., while the Foo Fighters are kickin' it Sept. 30 at the Pepsi Center (pepsicenter.com).
