Molly Lewis plays the ukulele and sings, and then she posts videos of herself playing the ukulele and singing to YouTube. Her songs about Stephen Fry and Abe Lincoln are instant classics.
The Doubleclicks are two sisters, Aubrey and Angela, who sing and beatbox their way to nerd fame. Their new EP Blatant Pandering has songs about D&D, superpowers, Jurassic Park, Cthulu, and cosplay–all things Geek Girls love.
Don’t rely on mp3s and the youtubes, here’s your opportunity to see these performers live and in-person at the GeekGirlCONcert!

I know all the Nerds in Babeland wish you two the very best of birthdays! May today be filled with everything you want and nothing you don’t! I got a bit verbose in wishing them the best so I did two posts explaining how I was introduced to these two spectaculous** people and why you should be as enamored with them!
For Molly: Today is Molly’s 21st birthday. I am probably not the only person letting out a sigh and muttering “FINALLY!” Molly is an extremely talented musician who had some pretty rough experiences this year when asked to join in on the w00tstock fun (among other appearances). Even though she was a performer, she was not able to chill inside the venue when w00tstock held hands with SDCC the weekend of July 23-25, 2010. So, being the adventurous (and most likely bored) girl that she is… NINJA GIG outside! She took requests and hung out with people until she was able to go in to perform, then I believe she returned and chilled some more. I didn’t get to go. I was stuck on the East Coast. If anyone has vid of the NINJA GIG I would love to see it! (I keep going at this point. Too much for this double birthday post.)
For Chris: Besides his time as “Hard” (of Hard’N’Phirm), Chris also has his hands in many other pots. So many, I’m thinking he’s part octopus. An octopus with pots of something. Chris writes for Wired, hops into reviews for G4′s AOTS most recently sporting an admirable lipwarmer (That’s a mustache, ya’ll), hosts Web Soup on the G4, rocks the stand-up stage, tweets like a maniac, live-actions (Yep. I just made that a verb.) in some stuff and lets Rob Zombie kill him, does a lot of voiceworks, hosts his own podcast, blogs for his own website, and co-birthed a nerdsourcing website that he provides bandwidth for. (Once again.. I keep going.)
* By the way Jules… I’m so happy you introduced us to this Curate thing. It’s wicked friggin shiny. I’m going to abuse the heck out of it.
** I use made up words. But… If you watch BSG, you should be used to that already.
