“PUNKED-UP VERSION OF BOWIE,” VICE
Posted Wednesday, September 24th, 2014 at 4:20 pm
5:50 PM: Arrive to a pretty packed museum lobby, where hard-rocking local bro/sis duo White Mystery are soundchecking. I chat them up a bit about Bowie Day. Drummer Francis Scott Key White digs “the mystery to his alter egos,” while guitarist Miss Alex White is a fan of “how dynamic his discography is.” They’ve never played Bowie covers before, nor any covers for that matter, but say they had to accept the “honor” of playing the MCA when asked.
6:00 PM: Shit gets loud. Fast. The glam-outfitted band runs through a frenetic set of hyper-charged, punked-up versions of Bowie gems like “Rebel Rebel” and “Suffragette City” turned up to 11 and immediately has the crowd convulsing in weird new ways. I think the staff is more than a little scared.
