Guitar-bass garage rock duos are a dime a dozen, but White Mystery from Chicago stand out and not just because siblings Alex and Francis are flaming redheads. (If they ever need to change their name, may I suggest Firecrotch?) Alex, formerly of Red Orchestra, has a soulful wail that she lets belt out at top register. They’re also less blues-y than many of their brethren — even without the singing nobody’s gonna confuse them with The White Stripes, Thee Oh Sees, etc. Their self-titled debut is a lot of fun. And you just know — you just know — they’re gonna be good live.
White Mystery play Don Pedros on Friday night (4/9) with Girls at Dawn, Medication, Lil Daggers, andThe Psyched. They’ll also play Cake Shop on Saturday with QXBXRX, Zbornak, and the Richie White Orchestra.
In addition to Serena Maneesh, Here’s a few more picks for tonight and Friday…
