The Doubleclicks are a Portland, Oregon based musical duo consisting of sisters Angela Webber (on guitar, ukulele, or keyboard cat[1]) and Aubrey Webber (cello). They are known for performing nerd-friendly comedy music, including songs about Dungeons & Dragons, dinosaurs, and other similar themes.


The band started their YouTube channel in 2011 with a 6-month song-a-week project and has since been releasing songs on YouTube and CD and touring throughout the US. They write many songs that are funny and emphasize geeky topics.[2] Angela initially wrote most of the songs but regards their more recent songs as a collaborative effort. They often perform at pop culture conventions, at entertainment events such as w00tstock, and in nontraditional music venues such as comic shops and game stores.[3]

Their third album, Lasers and Feelings, debuted at #7 on Billboard's Comedy Albums chart.[4]

The Doubleclicks made a video for their song "Nothing to Prove" about acceptance of women in geek culture.[5] The video featured appearances from celebrities including Kelly Sue DeConnick, Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage—and was covered in print and online media, gaining over 1 million views on YouTube.

In 2014, The Doubleclicks ran a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their fourth album, Dimetrodon, produced by Mike Phirman.[6] The campaign raised over $80,000 and was the most successful Portland music Kickstarter to date.[7]

Touring highlights[edit]

Ladies of Ragnarok[edit]

The Doubleclicks toured with Molly Lewis (and special guests such as Marian Call and Kevin Murphy) in a combined show called "Ladies of Ragnarok" in September 2012.[8][9] This was Molly's first tour and the Clicks' second; it covered a variety of venues through the American Northeast and Midwest.[10]


In February 2013 the Doubleclicks were featured performers on the third JocoCruiseCrazy, a music cruise series based around Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm and similar performers[11]


In May 2013 the Doubleclicks went on a cross-country tour dubbed "Velociraptour" after the subject of their song "Clever Girl."[12]
