The Hard Rock Cafe Seattle presents Kracklefest 3!
Rising through the ranks of nerd-rock to emerge as the leader in a new movement and genre of geek-driven musical inspiration, Kirby Krackle is known for putting on a high energy rock 'n' roll show, and writing songs about and from the perspective of pop culture icons, comic book characters, and video games. Kirby Krackle's name has become synonymous with the meeting of the nerdiest ideas and high level musicianship.
Paul & Storm:
Paul and Storm have been writing and performing funny songs together for a long, long time, starting with their stint together in a cappella band Da Vinci’s Notebook. Their music tends to make people laugh and feel good, and Paul and Storm believe that this makes their pursuit noble, right and just. BONUS: their live show is better than 1,000 Fonzies, and more spellbinding than Mr. T on a unicycle. (And equally as confusing as both of those things)
The Doubleclicks perform delightfully geeky songs in a way only a pair of sisters can – using their cello, ukulele and sweet harmonies. Since hopping on to the scene with a weekly new-song YouTube project and the music video for their Dungeons & Dragons love song – “This Fantasy World,” The Doubleclicks have headlined from Portland to Seattle and beyond, performing at w00tstock shows and entertaining audiences at pop culture, gaming and sci-fi conventions.
Nerds With Guitars:
Nerds With Guitars have been putting on the very nerdiest of high-energy live shows since 2004. They've shared stage with the likes of nerd-rock greats Kirby Krackle, TV's Ed the Sock, "Whose Line" star Colin Mochrie, and the Nerdist's Chris Hardwick, and they still can't quite figure out how they got that lucky. Their debut EP, "For The Record", is available on Bandcamp and iTunes.
