Alt-country luminary Jay Farrar, of the bands Son Volt and Uncle Tupelo, and Death Cab for Cutie’s Benjamin Gibbard don’t necessarily run in the same circles, but a shared love for Jack Kerouac brought them together in 2007 to produce songs for the Kerouac documentary One Fast Move or I’m Gone. Those sessions spurred an entire full-length 2008 album of the same name, with Farrar and Gibbard taking turns singing lyrics culled from Kerouac’s 1962 novel Big Sur. On their collaborative tour behind the album, Farrar and Gibbard will also revisit material from their outside songbooks.
