“How do you feel?” said Kinks guitarist Dave Davies as he took the stage Easter Sunday in Chicago. “I said, ‘Do you feel good?’” he asked again, rhetorically, before answering the question himself with the opening line of the 1965 Kinks single “Till the End of the Day.” Click here to read the whole article on Forbes’s website.

Miss Alex White & Francis Scott Key White are White Mystery from Chicago. The Chicago Tribune photographer Brian Cassella came over to capture the brother and sister at their two flat in Arcadia Terrace on the north side for the Rick Kogan article, “Redhead siblings play it loud and proud.” This picture is an outtake from that article.
White Mystery are siblings Miss Alex White and Francis Scott Key White, a Chicago based garage rock duo formed in 2008. Omaha artist Mike Kronberger (link his name to https://mikekronberger.com/white-mystery) created this poster in 2015 for their Omaha show at the Reverb Lounge with pretty much just a pencil adding the colors in digitally. The hair pattern was later used as a background graphic for the Miss Alex White custom signature fuzz pedal “Firekeeper.”
