THIS WEEKEND we are playing at PAX, you guys! PAX was one of our very first introductions to Epic Nerd Music In The Wild. And an amazing supergroup cover of Double Rainbow performed by MC Frontalot, Jonathan Coulton and Paul and Storm is, to this day, still one of the most beautiful things we’ve seen. Actually doing a mainstage show at PAX is one of those “dreams come true” for us — except it was a crazy dream that we never ever actually expected to happen, so holy crap, we are freaking out a bit, but it’s ok, keep breathing. Where was I?
We are playing the main stage Saturday night concert* at PAX! Come see us play songs from our new album and our old album, and watch us dance nervously, and also we will throw prizes into the audience in an attempt to make them like us. We will be hanging out at Bandland all weekend as well, selling CDs & a limited number of Doubleclicks dice. And please tell your friends!
*the concert starts at 8:30. We are on SECOND, followed by the rapper laureate of PAX, MC Frontalot himself.
For this new and most glorious holiday, we’re giving away our Dungeons & Dragons love song, This Fantasy World, for freeeee!!!
D&D was my introduction to the wild world of tabletop games… and once we found the board games, we could not be stopped. We’ve already played Gloom today, and though it is a busy day, in the background of my head I’ll be playing Lords of Waterdeep and Dixit and Revolution.
Speaking of Gloom… designer of Gloom Keith Baker created a special Tabletop expansion pack for today’s festivities, and he invited us & our friend Molly Lewis to play it with him… in front of a camera crew. It was really fun, and you can watch the result below.
You can pick up the special Tabletop Gloom cards from participating game stores today!
Have you heard of Cards Against Humanity? It’s a party game for horrible people. Horrible, horrible people. If you’re in to being horrible, and offensive, and laughing a lot – it’s a game you have probably already played.
This year, for PAX, we were asked by the very folks who make Cards Against Humanity to produce for them an “official theme song.” So we did. I should warn you – it’s not safe for work, for young ears, or for “not horrible”-type people.
1. We accidentally made a Holiday EP. It’s got 5 new, original songs by us. You can pre-order it digitally now, and we sold out of physical copies (for now) – but there may be more Real Disks for sale on Sunday. How this came about is a story we should really tell you sometime.
3. We will be appearing in a Ragnarok-themed streaming concert and video experiment with Molly Lewis during the end of the world (Dec. 21, 7pm-ish Pacific, 10pm-ish Eastern.) You can RSVP on Facebook for that, or just show up at Molly Lewis’ YouTube channel that evening. Perhaps we will survive the end of the world together…. perhaps. (wink)
4. We are working on a West Coast tour with Molly for January! Places we will definitely be: Los Angeles, Oakland, Palo Alto, San Diego, Portland, Seattle, Sacramento. Get all the details now!
Hello everyone! We have returned from our tour of the East Coast. It was an amazing tour, and if you have not yet, you can see our daily dispatches from the road in this YouTube playlist. We owe you many stories and photos (though you can find a lot by searching for #mollyclicks on Twitter)… and we will be doing our best to share those in blogs and podcasts of our own and others’ publishing.
But now: to the future!
Our Next Big Show is in Portland on November 8! It’s called #NerdNightOut, and we have collected quite a cast for you, thanks to some amazing sponsors who are making the whole darn thing possible. Here we are in a video, telling you all about it!
Comedy Bang Bang is one of our favorite podcasts, or pieces of media, forever for all time. And not just because of Paul F. Tompkins’ Andrew Lloyd Webber impersonation, which is Hilarious.
At the end of each episode of Comedy Bang Bang, host Scott Aukerman introduces a new, fan-submitted “theme song” for the “plugs” segment – the part of the show where his guests, comedians and artists, plug their latest projects, TV shows, and so on. On the latest episode of CBB, Scott played a song that we submitted!! And ROB CORDDRY heard it!!! Yesssss!
Our plugs theme was actually played once before on CBB, and Tig Notaro was there, which is awesome. If you’re a fan of comedy and podcasts, take a listen to those podcasts! And if you aren’t, but would still like to hear the song we wrote (though it may be sort of confusing out of context) – take a listen below. You can also download it free!
Hi guys! We just wrote a new song for the most recent Song Fu challenge: “Write a song about a robot all alone in a place very, very far away.”
This song is about the Mars Science Laboratory (Curiosity.)
We had a great time at Rose City Comic-Con this weekend, and PAX last weekend! And we’re about to take off for our tour! We’ve announced a couple new dates on the tour, and there will be at least one more announced – so keep an eye on the tour page.
As is our tradition (we’ve done it twice), this Labor Day weekend we released a few tracks on a pay-what-you-want (including free) EP, for all of con-goers looking for new music, students heading back to school, and people who attribute no real significance to this time of year, but still like free music.
