The For Carnation are back (playing Knitting Factory tonight)

TFC

The For Carnation are a post-rock band from Louisville, Kentucky who formed in 1994. The band was formed by Brian McMahan, who is the only constant group member. McMahan’s previous band Slint hinted at the distinctive sound and sombre aesthetic he would create in the For Carnation. To date they have released an EP and two albums: Fight Songs (Matador Records, 1995), Marshmallows (Matador, 1996), and The For Carnation (Touch and Go Records, 2000). Fight Songs and Marshmallows were compiled into one record, Promised Works, and released by Runt in 1997. Promised Works was re-released by Touch and Go Records in 2007. The band has included Doug McCombs and Johnny “Machine” Herndon of Tortoise, Todd Cook (Shipping News) as well as Britt Walford and David Pajo of Slint.

The For Carnation are on for TONIGHT (12/17), when the team up with Mountains at Knitting Factory. Tickets are still available. The band recently played a show at ATP’s 10th anniversary, as well as a prior warm up show in their native Louisville. No word on if Dave Pajo will he in the house for the show, like he was for ATP.
