Son Volt’s Jay Farrar and Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard never thought they’d be working together.
The musicians had carved out successful careers, but their paths crossed when they started working on the music for a documentary about beat-generation writer Jack Kerouac.
Now Farrar and Gibbard have a CD of tunes they composed based on Kerouac’s words (“One Fast Move Or I’m Gone”)– and they’re hitting the road with a new band featuring members of Son Volt and Death Cab for Cutie.
The dynamic duo hits the Boulder Theater on Tuesday.
