On Friday, word broke that multi-instrumentalist Brent Knopf was leaving Menomena. In a brief statement, the band said, "After 10 years of fruit­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion, Brent Knopf has decided to part ways with Menom­ena to focus on Ramona Falls and other cre­ative pur­suits. We want to thank Brent for his vast con­tri­bu­tions over the years and wish him noth­ing but hap­pi­ness in all of his future endeav­ors." That's the bad news. The good news? According to that same blogpost, Menomena is returning to St. Louis on March 10 at the Gargoyle. (Paul Alcott will be joining the group on the tour.) This is mere months after the group played at the Luminary Center for the Arts. A word of warning, as usual: The Gargoyle hasn't yet announced this show, so stay tuned for official confirmation hopefully soon.
