What happens when you take several hundred young people, cram them all into a venue, and add some of the best hip-hop and dance music Colorado has to offer? Answer: You get the epic concert that was 3OH!3 at their stop in Buffalo, NY.
The twosome white-boy rap/rock duo fronted by Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, certainly have released material worth talking about as they have mixed up elements of crunk, punk, electronica, and even emo, making for an energy overload giving new life to the hip-hop/techno/electronica scene that break the genre barrier. And what shall we name this new genre you may ask? Greatness
So what’s so great about them? 3OH!3 has managed to break out of the mainstream music genre to create a mash-up of two very popular genres in our time. Their playful lyrics poke fun at Helen Keller (in the song “Don’t Trust Me”) and even their inability to say the word “love” (“Starstrukk”). Sometimes being random is a good thing, and for those that are looking for music that’s simple and catchy
The show got off to a rocky start when both MC’s fumbled to the lyrics of the opening song, Foreman quickly remarked that the bad start was due to a steak sandwich he had gotten from local eatery Jim’s Steakout, stating that he wished he had taken a bathroom break before the start of the show, but turned things around when the guys launched into hit song “Richman.”
These guys don't do small, and they don't do subtle. The band never once wavered during their set - throwing limitless amounts of energy into each song and bouncing about the stage as though was a big trampoline while constantly encouraging audience chants and sing alongs. Their Fans are devoted, and the 3OH!3’s love for them is visibly reciprocated in their intoxicating, club-thumping show. The 3OH!3 have built an empire on ten fingers. With the crowd bringing your thumbs and index fingers together to form an “O” shape, and spreading the middle, ring, and pinky fingers apart flashing the 3OH!3. The show came to a halt when Motte stated that he was too hot and tired to do an encore and Foreman brought up the problems he was having with Jim’s Steakout before announcing he does not want his comments to effect his product placement check.
All in all, 3OH!3 has caught people’s attention, and will only gain popularity, after seeing their intense live show, I must say that it was one of the most enjoyable concerts I have ever attended. Try to catch the duo next time they play a show in your area.
It was a packed house and everybody had their "fangs up" for Cobra Starship's stop in Buffalo, NY. The minute Gabe Saporta and his Cobra band mates jumped on stage, it was clear they were the evening’s superstars
For those of you unaware of Cobra Starship they are signed to Decaydance, the label formed by Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz but have made a name for themselves with the anthem "Bring It" from the 2006 film "Snakes on a Plane," and such hits as the poppy “Guilty Pleasure” the Latin-flavored “Smile for the Paparazzi” and crowd favorite “Good Girls Go Bad”
Saporta moved around the stage with the cocky swagger or a true rock star through a set full of songs filled with sing-along choruses that brought the crowd to roar throughout the night. Saporta took real pleasure in engaging the audience in the tightly packed club rambling between songs about everything from the formation of the band to the t-shirt he was wearing, which was nothing but amusing and the crowd nonetheless ate it up like a food-court lunch. The crowd interaction was through the roof with a night full of anthem chants and a raging audience putting their “ fangs up” Formed by "placing two bent fingers of your right hand in front of the open palm of the left hand".
The band took a time out to wish drum tech Bryan Newman a happy birthday letting out a slew of balloons from the venue’s rafters leading into an impromptu game of volleyball throughout the crowd. There was quite a bit of back and fourth from Sparta and Keytar player Victoria Asher. Sparta later announced he was just trying to see how much he could get away with due to the fact Asher had recently broken her leg. Asher informed the crowd she had sent out a roadie to purchase a bedazzler to get her cast ready for the show.
With true showmanship the band rocked through their set list of dance floor anthems leaving, as far as pop punk goes, one hard act to follow. Cobra Starship delivered with all their zest and vigor a dance party that had the audience moving from the first note to a lingering guitar buzz at the end of their last song. Leaving this show, they are my new guilty pleasure by far being one of the most entertaining acts I’ve seen in a long time.
