Ben Gibbard and Jay Farrar, Antone's, Jan. 27, 2010

Ben Gibbard (Death Cab/Postal Service) and Jay Farrar (Son Volt) joined forces for a special tour, stopping in Austin at Antone's. The two originally got together in 2007 to work on a Jack Kerouac documentary, the project inspired an album and ultimately this tour. Their voices are really beautiful together and they're backed by a solid band. I would have liked a bit more interaction with the audience, maybe in explaining the project or the songs, though. And, Dear Death Cab fans: please don't have entire conversations during the concert. I came to hear them, not you.
