Every year brother-sister duo White Mystery celebrate tokers’ holiday 4/20 with a sweet spring surprise—and 2015 is no different. This time Gossip Wolf’s favorite Chicago garage rockers have switched up the format, releasing not a new album but instead a feature film about their “breakneck nomadic lifestyle” called That Was Awesome. This wolf has seen only the trailer so far, but it features cartoons, basketball, poetry about the band written by drummer Francis White and read by their dad, and cameos from underground rock luminaries (among them Cody Blanchard from Shannon & the Clams and Timmy Vulgar from Human Eye). And of course it’s got enough burning WM live jams to keep even passing fans entertained for the movie’s 50-­minute length. The world premiere of That Was Awesome is at the Logan Theatre on Mon 4/20 as part of CIMMfest, and White Mystery play the Cubby Bear on Thu 4/23. Link!
