Hello good friend, and happy summer! FINALLY!
We have a whole bunch of crazy news, so I hope you will at least skim the bold parts of this long long e-mail. The tl;dr summary is this: JoCoCruiseCrazy, Amanda Palmer, new CD, new songs, Northeast/Midwest tour, Molly Lewis, w00tstock, lots of Portland shows, we love you.
Let’s start with the concerts. We have all kinds of shows coming up for the West Coasties of you this summer, and I hope you will make it to some of them!
(If you’re in the Northeast or Midwest, you should know that we are coming to see you – This Fall – everywhere from Boston to Indianapolis, Philadelphia, DC, and more. And, this just in, we are bringing MOLLY LEWIS! More details on that will come later the summer, but you can mark your calendars now based on this blog post.)
west coast Mostly In Portland shows:
June 28, Portland, 6:30 pm: Free show with Small Souls at Alberta Street Pub, 1036 Northeast Alberta Street. We go on early – and then maybe you’ll enjoy the Last Thursday art walk?

July 12, San Diego, California! w00tstock 4.0! Adam Savage, Wil Wheaton, Paul and Storm, and more – and US! I don’t think it’s sold out *quite* yet. This is during SDCC. Tickets are here!

This time: with Seattle’s Nerd-rockers Kirby Krackle and more special guests TBA. The last one was amazing – and, from what I have heard of the planning, this one is going to somehow be even better. Eagle’s Lodge, 4904 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
August 19, Portland, 6pm: Molly Lewis & The Doubleclicks – outside in the courtyard at Bridge City Comics! Molly Lewis, of w00tstock, YouTube, and ukulele fame, is joining us in Portland to entertain and delight you. We’ll pass the hat for a $5 donation. 3725 North Mississippi Ave.
Later in the year, you will find us poking around at GeekGirlCon (Seattle, August 11-12, Buy passes now!), PAX, and Rose City Comic-con (Portland, September 8-9). In late September we take off for the East Coast, and we may be showing up at New York Comic-Con as well, in October.
Oh, and did we tell you that we are official performers on the Jonathan Coulton Cruise next February?
Stay tuned to this list and our Twitter page for all of those & more announcements.
More ways we try to entertain you…
Our new CD came out in April, and is doing well! If you have not yet purchased Chainmail & Cello, check it out! We’d also love it if you spread news of our kid’s CD,Worst Superpower Ever, to the children and children’s radio programs in your life. Both of those are for sale online in digital, physical and iTunes forms.
New songs are coming! We are working on an EP to come out during the second half of this year, and writing our monthly Song Fu assignments.
If you want anything from us – to commission a song, play our music on your podcast, want to host a house show or make us a music video – just e-mail angela [AT] thedoubleclicks.com. You can also send love to aubrey [AT] thedoubleclicks.com (she teaches cello lessons in Portland!) – or message either one of us on Twitter at@AubreyCello or @HellaCreates.
Things are ever more terrifying, exhilarating and awesome at Doubleclicks HQ. The number of once-in-a-lifetime announcements (Amanda Palmer? A CRUISE??!) in this e-mail alone is insane. Thank you for watching and supporting us. Thank you so much.
