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!
We love Denver and we’ll be there this weekend at AnomalyCon @ the Denver Tech Center Hyatt!

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
We have some fun new press coverage to share with you today!
We spoke with Stephanie at Talking Comics. Stephanie found us when we put a call out on Twitter saying this:
We were interested in having a more balanced set of interviews. We love talking to everybody, but we suspected that we might get more out of an interview when talking to a person who was a woman (for example, men tend to ask a lot of the same “what is it like to be a woman” and “since when do geek girls exist” questions, and we’d love to talk about other things). And hey—we were right, at least in Stephanie’s case.
Stephanie is an amazing interviewer and I was super interested in her questions and this conversation. Her podcast is called “Talking Comics” but we talked about a lot more than comics. Procrastination, quitting your job with and without a safety net, Nutella lattes, our future as the Aunts from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which super villain Aubrey wants to be, and our ideal fictional supergroup. Listen to Talking Comics!
We are very excited about the #NerdNightOut tour so we made this ad for the show! Czech it out! And get all the details at NerdNightOut.com.
We sat down in our studio and chatted with Sean from the Portland Cool Podcast. This was fun, Sean is just starting up his podcast and we met in an improv class! From what I remember, we talked about improv, being cool, the open mic scene, our first album, and probably the cat keyboard? That usually happens. Enjoy it!
Creator of MST3K, author of Name Of The Wind, genius songwriters of geek and comedy, and US. You best be at Nerds & Music, Portland.
Big news, everyone! We are taking our awesome geek-centric variety show ON THE ROAD! Each show is a unique nerd-weird hug, featuring songs by The Doubleclicks, jokes from comedian Joseph Scrimshaw (Wits, Rifftrax), plus guests and games!
We are returning to Vancouver’s GAMESTORM gaming convention yet again this year!
Gamestorm is a really fun convention: weekend passes are $55 and day passes are cheaper, but only available at the door. See you there!
And watch the video on YouTube:
Thanks to a vote of our excellent Patreon backers, we covered one of our favorite songs: Rainbow Connection from the Muppet Movie!
Loudr is a really neat service that allows us to sell covers legally and you can name your own price. It’s like Bandcamp, but awesome for covers!
We have a new original song for you, written with the amazing Jonathan “Song-a-day” Mann! It’s all about Mansplaining, that horrible buzzword.
You can download the song: Bandcamp (free/name your own price)
We are hearing that the YouTube comments are terrible! Want to read them? Click here!*
*don’t read them.
It’s a big month for the Doubleclicks in Portland, and these are all really fun, very different-from-each-other shows. We really hope you’ll come out to one or a few of them—they aren’t your regular Doubleclicks-show flavor!
