First of all—HELLO OUR NEW ALBUM IS OUT TODAY. GET OUR NEW ALBUM. IT’S ON BANDCAMP AND IT IS THE NUMBER ONE COMEDY ALBUM OVER THERE TODAY.
We are in Portland! We’re home! We’ve been home a lot this summer! It’s—to be honest—really, really nice. We aren’t touring as much as last year, mostly because we’ve been completely overwhelmed with other pursuits: Kickstarter, video, new projects, and some personal stress things have just taken up the time we would spend planning and being on tours. We’re working with some nice people who are booking things for us so we can do Everything At Once—but the net result so far is that we’re home more. And it’s nice. It’s real nice. Because we are doing so many great things here! Here are events that might be of interest to locals!
TOMORROW: Wednesday August 12—PICKLES Comedy Show— if you follow me (@angelamwebber) on twitter, you may have noticed I’m doing some Solo Comedy Things lately, and this is one of them. Free comedy show, tomorrow at 7pm, with me and a lot of great locals and touring acts! Information on Facebook.
NEXT WEEK: Tuesday August 18—JOHN SCALZI Reading at Powell’s! 7pm! John Scalzi is my favorite author in the world and he asked us to do a little music to “warm up” for him at his Portland book tour stop! Come to this because he is the greatest, stay because we are also there. Details on his website.
AND LATER: August 31—THE MOVIE QUIZ—9:30pm. We aren’t performing at this, but it’s a really fun trivia night and they’re having a Doubleclicks-themed round! You should go so that when he says “this round is themed around The Doubleclicks!” there is some applause. You should also go because it is seriously a super fun evening of trivia, even if you don’t know anything about movies. Mark (the host) puts a TON of work into it. Details on Facebook.
Our next album is called PRESIDENT SNAKES! It was funded by a bunch of you in a KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN! And it is finally coming out: on AUGUST 11!
You can pre-order President Snakes now on Bandcamp, and it will be delivered to your inbox automatically! (Kickstarter backers will get the album on August 10). FAQ: yes, iTunes pre-order link is COMING, and we don’t have a preference whether you use Bandcamp or iTunes.
President Snakes is an album about being yourself and dealing with tough times—plus two songs about a group of snakes running for President. It’s not all nerdy, not all folky, not all funny, but definitely a mix of those things. It’s the most honest and personal album we’ve ever created. There is sadness and happiness and a cat or two. It’s the next step for us and it is full of songs we are extremely proud of, many of which we have released online over the last year (“This Is My Jam,” “Really Big Chickens,” “Bad Memories,” and more)—but the album will have polished-up, shiny new versions. Unlike our last two albums, “President Snakes” is primarily produced and performed by the Doubleclicks, because it’s honest and raw and very close to our hearts, and we want it to stay that way. We have learned a lot in 6 years of nerd/folk/music and we were happy to put that all to work on this record!
To celebrate the album, we are having a big CD release show: on the Internet! September 1 on Youtube.com/thedoubleclicks 6pm PDT/9pm EDT, we will stream from our house to yours a live free concert with the songs from the albums, plus we’ll chat with you and answer questions and generally have fun! You can RSVP and invite friends to that show on Facebook!
We look forward to sharing our latest piece of art with you! Love and hugs!
#NerdNightOut is our fun variety show and we are bringing it ON TOUR this fall: first up to PAX in Seattle on August 29 and then across the country to all sorts of places! We hope you’ll join us! And if you can’t we do need some help to make the tour happen: it’s an expensive show with guests and travel and so on, and we’d love to bring you along IN A SORT OF WAY. For $50, we will send you a POSTCARD FROM THE ROAD! For $100, we will send you a SOUVENIR FROM A TRUCK STOP!
The Dork Forest is an awesome wonderful podcast hosted by comedian Jackie Kashian in which she asks people about the things they know way too much about. She interviewed each of us (separately! like we are two different people!) and you can listen to the episodes now!
Hello awesome nerds!Things are going pretty awesome in Doubleclicksland. We just wrapped our Kickstarter, which, thanks to you, raised over $55,000 for our next album!

Scroll to the end for a full schedule of shows! Continue reading →

This is our big video for April: a song about a tiny paper elephant, based on photos submitted by our Patreon Patrons and Twitter followers. We are super excited about this, especially about the fact that you made it with us!
You can download the song on Bandcamp!
It was sponsored by our backers on Patreon!
Portland: it’s a big time for us—there are lots of shows coming up! I have a summary for you below, and I highly recommend you JOIN THE PORTLAND DOUBLECLICKS FACEBOOK GROUP to get information about everything coming up including special PRIZES! Hooray Prizes!
Stay tuned for all of the fun!
TONIGHT, April 20, at 8:30 pm, join us at our favorite comedy show, “It’s Gonna Be Ok”. This is a free show in the basement of Eastburn featuring some of Portland’s best comics plus US! It’s a good idea to get there early to get a seat and a drink before it starts.
NEXT MONDAY, April 27, at 7:30, we will be guest-hosting and providing a mini mid-event-concert for “The Movie Quiz” trivia night at the Hollywood Theater! The event is $5 and it’s really fun trivia, even if you aren’t a big movie buff. We highly recommend checking it out!
in May we are going to be out of town on tour, but as soon as we get back there is a LOT going on, for example…
On JUNE 20, Angela will be a judge at Floating World Comics’ CAPTAIN PICARD DAY art show. If you like Star Trek, this is an excellent event to check out. It is crazy cool.
And then starting June 29, we will be having a TON of summer shows with touring bands from around the country. The dates aren’t all announced yet (though the image below has some information)—but I can tell you that there are EIGHT different acts (plus the Doubleclicks) combined on all of the shows planned so far. It’s going to be lots of fun!
We love Denver and we’ll be there this weekend at AnomalyCon @ the Denver Tech Center Hyatt! The concert is free with convention pass, which will be available at the hotel only—$20 for a Saturday badge or $35 for the whole weekend!! Children under 8 are free and ages 8-13 are half price with a registered adult.
CONCERT: Saturday night 3/28 at 9pm in room Grand Mesa ABC (the main events room)
PANEL: Sunday 3/29, 11am: “Kickstarting with Passion” in room “Wind River A”!
And look for us around the con, you may see us signing and selling in the dealer’s hall and probably taking lots of pictures of people in costumes! :D
