#NerdNightOut is a regular evening of music and comedy in Portland. This show is all-ages, but some comedy will have adult themes, we encourage you to check out the acts before attending to make sure they are appropriate if you plan on bringing kids.
The Doubleclicks: The Doubleclicks are a pair of sisters from Portland, Oregon who write songs that are all at once snarky, geeky and sweet. Angela and Aubrey Webber sing about Dungeons & Dragons, dinosaurs, and Mr. Darcy. Their geek girl anthem has been viewed over 1 million times on YouTube, and their 2013 album debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard comedy charts.
Barbara Holm: Originally from Seattle, Barbara Holm has performed at the San Francisco Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Arts festival, and the Women in Comedy Festival in Boston. She has written for IGN, The Portland Mercury, Hahajk, and the Huffington Post. She has been awarded Time Out New York's Joke of the Week and was named "one of the best things about comedy in 2012 by the Comedy Bureau. Her comedy has been described as clever, unique, idiosyncratic, and exuberant. Seattle City Arts Magazine called her a "comedy wizard" and Seattle Stranger Newspaper described her as an "adorable wunderkind" and she describes herself as "running away from this question to hide under the desk right now."
Molly Lewis: 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 4.5 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.
