If you like punk music and nerdy things, 3d6 has music for you. Dave (lead singer and guitar), Anthony (bass and vocals), and Rudy (drums) combine their collective musical talents, creativity, artistic skills, and knowledge of all things nerd to form the Las Vegas based band, 36d.
What Made You Want to Write and Perform Music?
Dave: I would daydream about performing and singing since I started playing guitar at 13, but was always too nervous to actually do it in front of people. I don’t know how this happened… I knew a lot of other people who played music, so that was one thing that pushed me to get over my fear of performing. The transition was pretty subtle, but it was years in the making. There is something really special about letting yourself go crazy whilst rocking and having people actually enjoy it.
Anthony: I’ve been playing music my whole life. My parents were both music teachers, so they started me young, whether I wanted to or not. I just sort of kept going, and now I’m excited to be able to write and perform songs about the things I love, and hopefully make people laugh.
Rudy: Music has always been an interest of mine. Although, I didn’t play music until my friends were forming bands and couldn’t find a drummer, so I played drums.
What Makes Them Nerdy?
”With Damage, we kept going back to stuff like math, and dungeons and dragons, and Nintendo games, and the looming robot uprising. We mention Battlestar Galactica a lot in Damage, or “BSG” as Jimmy would call it. And Space Fapping is mostly inspired by Sci-Fi stuff like Star Trek and MST3K, but we keep going back to gaming – particularly RPGs.”
3d6 has a lot of fandoms covered already, and they’re certainly not done yet. As far as influences go, the band still wants to write songs about games like Super Mario World, Final Fantasy,Diablo III; shows like Regular Show or Voltron; and books like Scott Pilgrim, Walking Dead, and even Ender’s Game.
Where Should I Start?

Where Can I Get Their Music?
As for what’s to come for 3d6, there are definitely some new things to look out for:
“We have another animated music video in the works, as well as other videos… Just the usual stuff: more gigs, more shirts, more silly songs, perfecting and evolving our “craft” if it can be called that. Maybe we’ll take over some radio stations and some more conventions and such.”
