Cobra Starship, 3oh!3, Travie McCoy and I Fight Dragons 

When: Tue., May 25, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $25-27
For gearheads a generation ago, the 303 was the mighty Roland bass synth box responsible for acid house's indelible squelch; to younger Guitar Center shoppers, it might just refer to their favorite make of Dr. Sample. Neither machine deserves the dishonor of having its name besmirched by the aurally syphilitic Boulder, Colorado, "crunkcore" duo known as 3OH!3. The band's music and videos look and sound like Axe Body Spray commercials, only more crass and crudely misogynistic. They rap like cavemen, they sing like androids, and their over-glossed music basically drugs and date rapes the dumbest sonic specimens of the electronic-pop spectrum (with sincere apologies to guest vocalists Katy Perry and Ke$ha). If history remembers Cobra Starship, it will be as "that band that had that song on the Snakes on a Plane soundtrack." ERIC GRANDY
