Photos and Review: Marmozets, Boston, MA

English post-hardcore band Marmozets have been garnering quite the following from numerous media outlets over the past year. Admittedly, I hadn’t given them much of a listen before this show, but following their energetic set, I need to dive into their work headfirst.

Sure enough, the fans showed their appreciation and then some for the band from the very first moment. The New Jersey based five piece kicked it off with a classic, “You’re Cute When You Scream,” and were met with a loud…
