Announcing: WEEKLY SONG WEDNESDAY!
For the rest of 2013, we will be releasing a new song every Wednesday. This is called “Weekly Song Wednesday.” Like it? It’s alliterative. The first song is already up: check out INTERNET TROLL on YouTube, and buy the mp3 (pay-what-you-want) on Bandcamp!
Find the songs every week on: YouTube (with videos! Subscribe! Please!) Bandcamp (pay-what-you-want!) iTunes (soon!) Tumblr (it’s like a blog) TheDoubleclicks.com (it is a blog!) and RSS (for nerds!)
We asked Twitter for questions about the project, and here are our answers: Continue reading
Video 1: VELOCIRAPTOR! The good word about body image, Hollywood, and velociraptors has been getting out, particularly through this video, which was posted by our friends at Live Wire Radio:
Our Jurassic Park/Velociraptor song is called “Clever Girl” (silly us with our jokey song titles) and it was on our last album “Chainmail and Cello.” That’s on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp (there are lyrics on Bandcamp.)
Video 2: A CONCERT! Our entire mainstage concert at the Paramount in Seattle was recorded by wonderful camera and sound people, and they provided the footage to us! So we uploaded it to youtube! So you can watch a full 50-minute Doubleclicks set right from your computer, including singing-alongs, swaying, and feedback (it goes away after the first song, promise.)
That’s all for now! xoxo -the Doubleclicks
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.
PS: Game Designer John Harper (Lady Blackbird, OneSeven Design) made a tabletop RPG called ”Lasers and Feelings” inspired by our album!! Find him at Games on Demand at PAX if you want to play or download it from his website!
Hello lovely velociraptors!
I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! Our new CD, Lasers and Feelings, is *out*! The album has dropped! The music is in the world! You can get it now on iTunes, Amazon, and all those places, or you can buy it directly from us on Bandcamp, where you can also get real-life-CDs and Very Pretty Art Posters.
The album is done! And so now we take it on a mini-tour to Seattle, Portland, Albany (Corvallis) Oregon, San Francisco, Oakland, and we will be at SDCC in San Diego and at GenCon!!
This is crazy. Thank you guys so much. I’m trying to figure out how all this wonderfulness happened, other than that nerds are awesome and I have one amazing sister, and I am still confused and just so grateful. Confateful? Here is a little part of the story… Continue reading
The Doubleclicks are a pair of sisters from Portland, Oregon who write songs that are all at once snarky, geeky and sweet.
If you’re new to the Doubleclicks, you might start by streaming their album (for free!) or watching a YouTube playlist of the band’s live performances.
Also find them on Tour, on Twitter, on Facebook and on YouTube!
THANK YOU TO ALL who submitted videos. Submissions are now closed. The video will be out on or around July 23!
Hello friends! We are working on a project that we are very, very excited about. We collected some of the video we needed on tour, but we need some more geek girls to help us out.
We are crowdsourcing a video for our song “Nothing To Prove” off of our forthcoming album. It is a song about being a geek girl despite what the “haters” have to say about it. We want to collect stories from excellent geek girls to share in this video and show how awesome geek girls are. Read on to find out how you can help!
We need short videos (about 5 seconds) of you holding up a sign answering one or two of the below questions. Note: we need VIDEO, NOT PHOTOS. Take a look at the questions and PLEASE READ THE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES before submitting! You only need to answer one (or maybe 2) of the questions below, so if you don’t have an answer for all of them, you can still be a huge help! Note: currently our biggest need is for answers to questions #3 & 4. Thanks! Continue reading
We are in Brooklyn this morning – we played a very fun show at a Doctor Who-themed bar last night, and we’re off to Boston now for more shows! We have finally and officially COMPLETED work on our new album, “Lasers and Feelings“, and we are very excited to say it will be out in the world and ready for your ears on July 9 – and you can pre-order it now!
In the meantime, we are still on the road making this tour thing happen. So many miles to go before we sleep, as they say… but it’s all so much fun! Thanks to everyone who’s come out to the shows so far, and to everyone who has spread the word. Telling your friends about us is one of the very best ways you can support us! Here are our upcoming dates for the West Coast leg of our tour (plus Gen Con!)
Thanks you for your time and love, everybody! Stay tuned to the e-mail list to hear about upcoming streaming shows and a countdown to the NEW ALBUM!
