The Andy Animal “Meltasia” festival takes place in Catskill, New York. It is a focused rock’n’roll weekend event that brings together the coolest of the cool underground tastemakers, like the Black Lips, Shannon & the Clams, Pentagram, Kool Keith, Bloodshot Bill, White Mystery, Mungo Jerry, and Black Oak Arkansas. In 2016, comedian Neil Hamburger was the host, hundreds of people camped in an abandoned zoo, and harmonica master Daddy Long Legs even played in a former monkey cage.

2016 Grand Rapids
Michigan is an important mitten-shaped state to the White Mystery history and we are thankful for all that attended the OUTTA CONTROL record release party!
White Mystery premiered it’s first ever feature-length film, “That Was Awesome” to a sold out audience at the Logan Theatre on April 20, 2015 for the Chicago International Music & Movies Fest. Guests walked the “green carpet” and enjoyed the critically acclaimed psychedelic dark comedy produced and directed by Miss Alex White! See the trailer on VICE.
What better place to spend 4/20 than the Netherlands? White Mystery released “DUBBLE DRAGON” to a packed house at dBs near Amsterdam on April 20, 2014. The gatefold of the double album was even designed by a Dutch artist named KIKI and High Times featured the event.
2013 San Francisco
White Mystery invited 12 of it’s favorite West Coast bands to play the “PSYCHEDELIC MELTDOWN” at Brick & Mortar in the Mission on April 20, 2013 to release the third album, “Telepathic” in San Francisco. Orange Amps, Cutty Sark, and Airheads sponsored the event, and we released a White Mystery coloring book! Click for more.
2012 Brooklyn, New York
Inspired by the Rolling Stones, White Mystery organized a “Rock’n’Roll Circus” with bands, a ventriloquist, acrobats, contortionists, and video projection artists at Big Sky Works in Brooklyn, New York. The show sold out to celebrate the release of “People Power” and a memorable night was had by all— captured by Impose Magazine in these incredible photos here.
Back in 2011, there was an up-and-coming neighborhood called Logan Square, and a old dive called Pancho’s. White Mystery sold out a double header with two concerts in one night on April 20, 2011— an all-ages early show with Loose Dudes and adult show later that night with Rabble Rabble. The Onion donated a quarter page print advertisement to promote the release of White Mystery’s second album, “Blood & Venom.” More info in the original post.
The first ever White Mystery 4/20 event was a hot box at the old Miss Alex White apartment, 2826 W. Dickens. Friends gathered on the street at 4:20pm and were led upstairs for a White Mystery show in the dining room to celebrate the first ever White Mystery album. While the party was small, The Chicago Reader was there!Posted 02.09.15 Permalink to this story
