It's been a few weeks since our last 3OH!3 post. (Forgive us, father, for we have sinned.) Fortunately, you'll be happy to know that the Boulder-based hooligans, slated to appear at this weekend's Mile High Music Festival, haven't budged from their ubiquitous perch. And their influence appears to be widening. (Anybody notice Shwayze copping a 3OH!3 vibe on its new single, "Get U Home"?) The pair is still getting tons of spins on nationwide radio and generating reams of press. This week, Sean Foreman and Nat Motte are featured in USA Today, and surprisingly, especially given the mega tons of ink that have been spilled on these cats, the piece actually proves to be somewhat enlightening. Foreman, for instance, relates a story of nearly being killed by a mirror ball at the Fox Theatre during 3OH!3's first show, while Motte talks about plans to go to medical school. Check the dudes getting folks all worked up during their most recent stop at the Fox, as well as a vintage performance from 2006, after the jump.
