We, Molly Lewis & The Doubleclicks, with some help from Dammit Liz, planned & performed a big awesome east coast/midwest tour for in the fall of 2012. It’s over now, but check out the blog below to see what it was like!
Many, many of you demanded, as we were traveling along our merry way this fall – “Why aren’t you touring the West Coast!” It was a demand! And a fair one.
Well, we have an answer for you now… WE ARE touring the West Coast, good people! We’re doing it IN LESS THAN A MONTH! We’re going to: Seattle! Portland! Sacramento! Los Angeles! San Diego! And The Bay Area!
Can you believe it? Three weeks, 17 shows, and 4,000 miles later – our tour is really, finally, done. We had an amazing time, and we loved sharing it with you on YouTube and Twitter (if you missed any of it, check in on the MollyClicks Twitter Hashtag and the YouTube pages for The Doubleclicks and Molly).
Here is our final video, filmed last night after our final show in Cambridge:
So, what’s next?
On December 21, Molly Lewis & The Doubleclicks will be reuniting in an apocalypse bunker to livestream a concert as the world ends. It will be a google-hangout-style-stream. RSVP on Facebook to be kept up-to-date.
PS – do you want us to tour to your town? Tell us! We’re both collecting venue, house concert & other suggestions – fill out The Doubleclicks’ form and/or Molly Lewis’ form to bring the music you want to you!
Hi, all. Molly here.
As a companion to the Doubleclicks’ daily slice-o-life vlogs, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the van editing together these fancypants vlogs of some of the stops we’ve made. There are still more to come, and I’ve compiled them into a YouTube playlist for your convenience and viewing pleasure.
We are ON THE ROAD! We’re so excited! We’ve just played 4 shows in a row, in Cambridge, Brooklyn, Washington, DC and Elizabethtown, PA – each a different and beautiful experience. We’ve also seen Ford’s Theater, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and a number of truck stops. We have been tired and we have slept well. It’s a grand time.
Are you not on the road with us? We miss you! But thanks to the magic of YouTube, it can be sorta like you’re here!
Travel with us across the country with Molly’s Travel vlog!
And catch daily mini-updates from the Doubleclicks on our “Tour vlog” playlist:
There are more videos to come – including a complete HD video of our Elizabethtown concert last night, which was a ton of fun.
Love from the road!

Is our tour missing you? We are sorry! Or ARE WE? Maybe not, because we’re playing a show just for you… on the INTERNET! Stay tuned to here, to our Twitter List and Youtubes page and This Facebook Event for fun from the road & more information about our Saturday, Sept 29 show: streamed live to this Internet from somewhere in Pennsylvania! 7:30 Eastern/4:30 Pacific/sometime else in the middle parts.
MINNEAPOLIS! You’re about to become happy happy people. You might have already been happy, but be ready to get happier. Are you ready?
On Thursday, October 4, The Ladies of Ragnarok Tour will be rocking your city with our ukuleles and cello. You already know this, you’ve probably gotten used to it. AND we will be joined by your own Joseph Scrimshaw, a comedian of hilarious tweets and even more hilarious geeky tales. Ok, that’s the base we’ve established.
And NOW!!! NEWS!!! The Ladies of Ragnarok will be joined by… The one and only… KEVIN MURPHY!!!!!
Tickets are only $10, good people. Join us at your Geek Partnership Society for an evening of geekery, music, comedy and entertainment that will warm the deepest dragons in your dunegons. Tickets are on sale now!
Kevin Murphy is probably best known for portraying the stout red robot Tom Servo on Mystery Science Theater for nine seasons. For their work, Kevin and his colleagues received the Peabody Award and several free dinners, and apparently made an enemy of Joe Don Baker.
After the series ended Kevin traveled the globe, seeing movies in theaters every day for an entire year, chronicling the experience in the book A Year at the Movies: One Man’s Filmgoing Odyssey.
Since then Kevin persists at being a culture-motivated merry-andrew, including a stint as a film commentator on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday and a column in Total Movie Magazine. Presently Kevin and his MST3K confreres Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett continue to riff movies through Rifftrax.com.
Time for a very exciting announcement!
We’ve just added Mr. Bill Corbett, of MST3K and Rifftrax fame, to our concert at Evanston Space near Chicago on October 3! BILL CORBETT, YOU GUYS!!!!! Tickets run $15-25 and you can buy them right now!!!
The Chicago show is a full Dammit Liz production – there will be music by Molly Lewis & The Doubleclicks – there will be comedy by Joseph Scrimshaw, an *awesome* geek-flavored comedian from Minneapolis – and there will be MORE SURPRISES AND ENTERTAINMENT! Who’s excited? Are you excited? We are very excited. Here’s that ticket link again!!
Bill Corbett is one of the stars of Rifftrax.com. He’s a former writer and performer for MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, playing the robot Crow (v 2.0) and various other odd characters—including the all-powerful but clueless alien The Observer (a.k.a. “Brain Guy”). He is also a much-produced playwright, stage actor, and screenwriter. Corbett is a performer and writer on public radio’s WITS; and previously a contributing writer for PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION and ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, and is co-creator of the animated web series POKER NIGHT on Icebox.com. His comic book SUPER-POWERED REVENGE CHRISTMAS, with art by Len Peralta, will come out in fall 2012.
Hi, team. Molly here.
I made a video announcing our upcoming tour!
(If you’re on this page, odds are you already knew about our tour.)
You may notice that this calls itself Episode 0. Episode 0 of what? you may ask. Well, I’ve taken it upon myself to be the videographer on this tour, and will be making vlogs and mini-episodes throughout. I’ve decided to title these videos “Ladies Of Vlognarok,” and Liz hasn’t told me that’s awkward or dumb-sounding so I’m sticking with it.
I’ll be making some HD shiny vlogs, and The Doubleclicks will be making short and sweet phone upload vlogs on their own own channel, which we’ll compile on this website, as well as this YouTube playlist.
Incidentally, if you have suggestions for places we should eat or sights we should see (and possibly vlog about) on the tour, please tweet it at me with the hashtag #TouristsOfRagnarok; I’ve got a FourSquare list that I’m updating every day with suggestions, and we only get about 24 hours in each city (with a few exceptions), so we want to make the best possible use of our time.
