The Doubleclicks (http://www.thedoubleclicks.com/) are a nationally-touring, Billboard charting nerd band with a cello, a meowing cat keyboard, and songs about dinosaurs, Cats & Netflix, space and Dungeons and Dragons. Their YouTube videos boast over 3 million views and have been featured on BoingBoing, Kotaku, the Huffington Post, and on NPR shows “Live Wire” “All Things Acoustic” and “State of Wonder.”
Jackie Kashian's comedy is like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered. She is comic, writer, and occasional actor... she just did her first late night set on the Conan O'Brien show, has a half hour special on Comedy Central and has recorded an episode of This American Life with Ira Glass, Her latest CD, "It Is Never Going To Be Bread" was one of the top ten comedy albums of the year on Amazon. She hosts a weekly cult fave podcast called "The Dork Forest" where she creates a safe space for people to admit that thing they dork out about more than anyone.
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 4.5 million views on YouTube. Her cover of the Jonathan Coulton song "Tom Cruise Crazy" won her 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 in the Internet-culture-based touring variety show W00tstock. Her first album, "I Made You A CD, But I Eated It," was released by 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.
