White Mystery played with Neptune’s Core and MIIRORS along with an all-star cast of cool Chicagoans at the Empty Bottle on March 15, 2022 for the Quiet Pterodactyl Situation Chicago two-day festival. In addition to being a good ol’fashion rock’n’roll celebration, it was super cool hosting Neptune’s Core on stage to to join us for a duet of the White Mystery classic jam, “Birthday.” We remember meeting the Neptune’s Core band members when they were toddlers more than a decade ago, and now they’ve grown up to start a rad sibling band of their own. That is the kind of synchronicity that keeps our band going all of these years.

NYE at Soho House Chicago

It’s not everyday that you survive a global pandemic then get to play an incredible party on the rooftop of a private club downtown. On December 31, 2021, White Mystery brought in 2022 for a select crowd at Soho House Chicago, on Green Street. We’re grateful for the opportunity to perform on NYE, especially given that our last New Year’s Eve show was at the Hideout back in 2019! A good time was had by all. Photos by Azuree Wiitala.
