SkiNet: So, how'd you come up with your name? Nat: It's the area code — Sean: We wanted a name rooted in Colorado since both of us grew up in Boulder and met at CU. We originally called ourselves 'Ballerado' but then I got a tattoo on my leg with '3Oh!3.' Nat: The exclamation point is cool. Sean: Yeah, and so we went with 3Oh!3.
SkiNet: What were the first 3Oh!3 sessions like? Sean: Us in a basement with my roommates yelling at us to keep it down. Now, they're asking to get on the guest list.
