BRIGHTEST YOUNG THINGS
White Mystery is a brother and sister garage rock duo. They both have giant red afros. Their last names are actually White. They actually are brother and sister. Whatever. All the comparisons between them and the obvious don’t matter. The Chicago group is fucking loud and fucking good. They’re no frills in all the right ways. They just released their second album, “Blood & Venom,” which is an awesome album title. They just played their 100th show of 2011. There are still four more months in this very rainy year. White Mystery is one of the bands that are doing everything the right way. They release music on their own label, their merch is a family affair, with some buttons featuring actual hair from their actual afros and some shirts and other schwag designed by their mom and, once again, they rock. They’re at Asefu’s, 1920 9th St NW, tonight at 8pm.

White Mystery is the guitar-drums brother-sister duo of Alex and Francis Scott Key White. They both sport red curls that they regularly thrash back and forth. It’s a neat visual and suits their herky-jerky garage-punk-thrash. Expect short songs and plenty of sweat at Asefu’s.
