“Fresh of an opening tour slot for Weird Al Yankovic, Seattle based nerd-rock band Kirby Krackle are proud to debut their fourth full-length album, “Sounds Like You” at the Triple Door before embarking on their West Coast tour in support of their new album. Having spent the past five years touring the world and rising through the ranks to emerge as one of the leaders behind the new nerd-rock / geek-music movement, Kirby Krackle returns with another album full of adamantium-laced rock-pop and continues to provide the soundtrack for geek life as it exists in 2013. Whether singing about falling in love over social media, what they imagine might exist north-of-the-wall in HBO’s “Game Of Thones” series, or the excitement of going over to your grandma’s house to a thumping dance beat, Kirby Krackle puts on a show to inspire you to sing along with passion to songs about the pop-culture topics your love, and remind you why being a geek is so awesome.”
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 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 on 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. 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
After many combined years toiling away in various “creative” industries, a few nerds decided to get together and try to make “music”. Though their goal may yet prove to be impossible, H2Awesome! is the closest approximation to that dream that all of them will ever see.
And that’s probably very, very sad.
REGARDLESS – H2Awesome! is finally here for your listening “enjoyment”. If you’re a nerd that likes Star Wars or Star Trek or Comic Books or Ninjas, you’ll probably enjoy this band greatly. Or if you’re a fan of mediocre music, you probably won’t be too disappointed either.
So come along for the ride as some nerds pick up instruments and write nerdy songs
