3OH!3 (due this Saturday, November 16, at Summit Music Hall) formed in 2004 as an irreverent, outrageously humorous, dance pop band. Founded by Boulder natives Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman, 3OH!3 quickly caught on with audiences locally and then well outside of Colorado with its 2007 debut, 3OH! ... More >>

So this happened: In case you missed it -- God knows we did -- 3OH!3 recently had a cameo on Hellcats, in which the Boulder boys performed "My First Kiss," with a scantily clad Ashley Tisdale serving as a sultry proxy for Ke$ha.

When we last spoke with Jared Piccone of Innperpartysystem back in 2009, the act had just come off its split with Island Records. There was rampant speculation amongst fans about the future of the band, but Piccone assured us that it was a step in the right direction for everybody involved.
Lest the rest of the country think we're merely home to indie rock goodness like Candy Claws and sugary sweet electro-pop confections like 3OH!3 or Breathe Carolina, Allegaeon's new album, Fragments of Form & Function, issued two weeks ago on the storied Metal Blade Records imprint, should ...

While we always suspected that you could really cut a rug to 3OH!3's music -- especially "My First Kiss," the first single from the outfit's new album, Streets of Gold, and the video of which also earned the outfit another MTV VMA nomination earlier this week -- now we have proof, thanks to Kent B ...

Ever wonder what it takes to manage the day-to-day affairs of 3OH!3? Wonder no more.
