FuMPFest Guests

Guest of Honor

The Doubleclicks

The Doubleclicks (Laser Malena-Webber and Aubrey Turner) are a Portland & LA-based musical duo who mix comedy, messages and geek culture in charming, catchy songs. Since debuting with a weekly YouTube songwriting project in 2011, the Doubleclicks have carved out a space in geek and songwriting communities with their message of empowerment and their penchant for involving their community of listeners in the creation of their music and videos. The Doubleclicks’ 2012 album Lasers and Feelings and 2015 album President Snakes hit the Billboard charts in comedy.

The Doubleclicks tour the country, playing everywhere from music venues to comedy clubs, game stores, and at events like San Diego Comic-Con, PAX, JoCoCruise and more. The band’s loyal fanbase frequently participates in their music videos and has elevated the band by funding two albums via Kickstarter projects raising a total of more than $135,000. The Doubleclicks have written theme songs and created commercials for popular game brands Cards Against Humanity and Fluxx, for a Nerdist partnership with Totinos, and for many podcasts and web series.

Carrie Dahlby

Earlier this year, Carrie enjoyed her first "Music Guest of Honor" status at Capricon 39 (Chicagoland, IL).

Clearly Guilty

There is only one word that describes Clearly Guilty's music: Nerdy. And Purdy. Two words. There are only TWO words that describe Clearly Guilty's music: Nerdy and Purdy. And Dirty. Three words. Clearly Guilty: Nerdy, Purdy, and Dirty. (Also Geeky, Funny, Science-y, Absurd, Delightfully Inappropriate, and Rutabaga)

Raymond and Scum

When Matthew Dunn and Jeff Smith met in junior high, they made a pact: they would become a frickin' awesome comedy rock duo by the end of the millennium. And it happened: that 7th grade dream lived and breathed as Raymond and Scum. From 1992 - 2015, R&S played their witty, catchy-as-hell songs in comedy clubs, coffee houses and conventions across the country and were regularly played on the Dr. Demento show. Then...without warning...it all stopped. They vanished into the comedy shadows and remained silent. And they waited...and they waited...and they waited...and then FuMPFest 2019 was announced. And just like that, for the first time in four years, Raymond and Scum are back, baby!

The Library Bards

The Library Bards are a nerd parody band consisting of Bonnie Gordon (ABC's The Quest) and Xander Jeanneret (TBS' King of the Nerds). They take popular songs and transform them into the nerdy versions they should have been in the first place! The Bards have been featured on CBS' Celebrity Name Game, SyFy's Geeks Who Drink and on the legendary Dr. Demento Show. You can keep up with all of their shenanigans on their Twitter.

TV's Kyle and Linzilla

TV's Kyle is the puffy-vested bloopcore artist responsible for some of the more surreal songs posted to The FuMP. He is also the creator of Cartoon Network's Mighty Magiswords. Together with Linzilla—the world's smallest kaiju—they will take the stage and tell you the four things you need to know, one of which is that you can't get there from here. Booyah!
