Portland folk-pop duo the Doubleclicks have announced a 26-city tour across the U.S. (and one city in Canada.) The band’s 2015 album, “President Snakes,” discusses topics from breakfast and cats to childhood bullying and social anxiety, and spent 2 weeks on the Billboard comedy charts thanks to support of fans around the world and a popular Kickstarter campaign. President Snakes is a fictional Presidential Candidate, invented by the duo, who is 5 snakes wearing a suit pretending to be a person. Is this political commentary? No one is quite sure.
The tour will include mostly all-ages concerts, as the Doubleclicks are hoping that kids, teens, families, and nerds of all ages will enjoy their show, which will feature music from President Snakes, hits from previous albums, and new material. Some tour dates will feature special guests, including ukulele songwriter and HBO documentary soundtrack composer Danielle Ate The Sandwich, producer/rapper/geekette Sammus, and singer/songwriters Marc with a C and Juliana Finch.
Full tour list is below! All concerts kid-friendly unless noted.
Tickets available for some shows, others are just “suggested donation at the door.” It helps a lot if you RSVP on Facebook & invite your friends!
