Sponsor the Tour
This fall, Molly Lewis & The Doubleclicks will leave the comfort of their homes and the Internet to play their clever, geek-inspired tunes to audiences in over a dozen cities, all the while preparing all for Ragnarok, the zombie apocalypse, and whatever else 2012 may bring. Produced by Dammit Liz, this fantastic show will be augmented by guests such as spicy songstress Marian Call and geek- flavored comedian Joseph Scrimshaw in some cities. Ladies of Ragnarok hit the East Coast and Midwest this fall: see them before the world ends!
Young songwriter Molly Lewis, according to wikipedia, writes “comedic songs on pop culture topics that trend toward the nerdy.” Her original songs and covers, accompanied by her masterful ukulele playing, have earned her over 4.4 million views on YouTube. Her cover of the Jonathan Coulton song “Tom Cruise Crazy” won Lewis the “Ukulele Video of the Year” award from UkuleleHunt.com, and earned her the attention of Coulton himself. Lewis soon became a staple at Coulton concerts, and on the Internet-culture-based touring variety show w00tstock. Her first album, “I made you a CD, but I eated it,” was released on DFTBA records and received local and national press. Lewis recently blew the Internet’s mind when she was invited to sing her song about wanting to have Stephen Fry’s babies to Stephen himself at Harvard University. http://sweetafton23.com
The Doubleclicks are a self-proclaimed “nerd-folk” duo, based in Portland, Oregon. The band is made of the Webber sisters: Berklee College of Music graduate and cellist Aubrey, and songwriter and ukulele player Angela. In 2011, the band started a “song a week” project, in which they posted new songs on their YouTube channel every week for a year – ranging in topics from superpowers to grammar. Their music, particularly a music video for their “Dungeons and Dragons” song created by Brooklyn-based artist Brad Jonas, boosted the Doubleclicks into position as a songwriting voice of the geek and gamer community. The band has toured to gaming and comic conventions and has shared the stage with Wil Wheaton, Amanda Palmer, and Paul and Storm. Though the tracks on The Doubleclicks’ first studio album “Chainmail and Cello” come from “a geeky place,” reviewers note that the Doubleclicks’ music has a broad appeal that can reach beyond the walls of the local game store. http://thedoubleclicks.com
Boston, NYC, Washington DC shows will include:
Singer-songwriter Marian Call delivers whimsical Alaskan folk funk to audiences all over North America. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell & Regina Spektor raising the child of Jason Mraz & Lisa Hannigan. Call’s sound is soulful, honest, humorous, and clever, loved by all types — computer geeks, church ladies, teenage groupies, NPR listeners, and urban hipsters worldwide. Marian toured all 50 states in 2010 and continues to tour around the continent at a rapid clip. Find more information at http://mariancall.com.
