The Doubleclicks are a folk-pop music duo made up of siblings Laser and Aubrey. At this show, the siblings will perform songs geeky, snarky, sweet, and uplifting, on their cello, ukulele and meowing cat keyboard. The latest Doubleclicks album, “the Book Was Better” has songs about video games, gender identity, and trying to get away from the Internet. The Doubleclicks songs are for everybody, and tend to be appreciated by nerds, queer folks, kids and rad folks who helped fund the production of their new album on Kickstarter, and have made three of their previous albums Billboard-charting successes. The Doubleclicks have been played on NPR shows like All Things Acoustic and featured on BoingBoing, io9 and Geek & Sundry, and The Huffington Post. The Doubleclicks have opened for nerd stars like Jonathan Coulton and Wil Wheaton, performed at dozens of conventions, libraries, colleges, comedy clubs and game stores around the US, Australia, and Canada, and released more than 70 music videos on YouTube, where they have 16,000 subscribers and 3 million views.
The PDX Broadsides, a Portland OR pop-folk trio, have been playing music together since 2011, and have become known for their harmonies and clever writing. The Broadsides have played around the country at conventions including Dragon Con, Rose City Comic Con, and GameStorm, or you may have seen them play in shows with The Doubleclicks, Marian Call, or Molly Lewis. They are a Ph.D., an author, and a comic book nerd, and have received two nominations for the Pegasus Awards for Excellence in Filk.
Megathruster is two geeks in Oregon, armed with acoustic guitars to bring their special blend of funny nerd rock to the masses.

Their wands are at the ready…
The Library Bards have become a staple in the new Comic and Pop Culture Convention scene. Traveling the United States, the dynamic performances of Bonnie Gordon (ABC’s The Quest; voice of R. Mika in Street Fighter V), and Xander Jeanneret (TBS’ King of the Nerds; voice of the Announcer in Divekick) bring life to the main stages of Cosplay Contests, Panels, and Concert performances.
