After bringing his Death Cab For Cutie band mates through the Twin Cities twice in a span of three months last year in support of Codes And Keys, DCFC frontman Benjamin Gibbard is coming back to the area this fall on a short U.S. tour to promote his first solo record, Former Lives.


Gibbard will be playing the Woman's Club on Thursday, November 1, with Advance Base (the new project from Casiotone For The Painfully Alone's Owen Ashworth) serving as the opening act. His solo album is due out on Barsuk Records on October 16, which will give fans a few weeks to spend with Gibbard's new solo material before his intimate show here.

Pre-sale tickets for the tour are being sold exclusively to Death Cab For Cutie fan club members beginning Wednesday, August 15 at noon. Tickets for the general public begin on Friday, August 17. More information can be found on benjamingibbard.net.

Gibbard has also recently teamed up with Dave Eggers and his imaginative McSweeney's cohorts for a new get-out-and-vote initiative called "90 Days, 90 Reasons," which aims to remind voters that we are in an election year, and why President Obama deserves another term.

Arcade Fire's Win Butler, Roger Ebert, Aimee Mann, and Judd Apatow are just some of the luminaries that have signed on to show their support for the President, and Gibbard's impassioned piece is featured as the first installment of the provocative and informative series.

I think my ultimate dream is seeing Ben Folds and Death Cab perform live together - that would be such a neat experience. I've been watching the video http://bit.ly/OPp8oA by Ben for a while now and it drove me to preorder their album from http://bit.ly/NFWstn ...now I'm just waiting for a new Death Cab album
