3Oh!3 

Tuesday, Nov. 16, Knitting Factory

Boulder, Colo.-based electronic duo 3OH!3 blend together modern music staples and churn out a candy-coated Technicolor variant on hip-hop. Members Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman have pioneered what's been coined as "crunkcore," basically a breed of hip-hop and screamo that incorporates heavy bass, gratuitous synthesizer scrambling and a healthy dose of pounding rhythm lines. Laid over this are Motte and Foreman's DJ-esque party-leader vocals, often enhanced with AutoTune and paired with female vocalists (a la Katy Perry and Ke$ha), who provide catchy hooks and breakdown verses.

3OH!3 hit it big with their second studio album Want, which carried hits "Don't Trust Me" and "Starstrukk," with the former sporting the lines: "Shush girl, shut your lips / do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips." With Streets of Gold, they've attempted to keep the party going and the whole gaudy parade will roll into Boise's Knitting Factory on Nov. 16.
