Out of England and into the Rickshaw Stop, Marmozets delivered a stellar, energetic performance Monday night. That performance was well-received by the audience and reciprocated back to the band. It set the atmosphere for a fun night that ended with the audience joining the group in a singalong.
The group’s tour comes after the January release of its second album, Knowing What You Know Now. A good mix of songs from both albums were featured in Monday’s show, with highlights including “Captivate You,” from 2014’s The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets and “Play,” the first single off of their latest album.
The passion and energy in vocalist Becca Macintyre’s singing was matched by her brothers Josh, at the drums, and Sam, on guitar and backing vocals, as well lead guitar player Jack Bottomley.
Marmozets have a few more shows in North America before heading back to Europe in April and continuing their tour there.
The show was opened by Oakland post-hardcore band Super Unison. Although lead vocalist Meghan O’Neil Pennie was dealing with a sinus infection, it didn’t stop her and the band from putting on a strong performance. The group previewed a few songs they plan to record for an upcoming LP, which they will head to Chicago within the next few weeks to record.
