Chicago at Night

White Mystery (8PM Saturday at Metro. $5, 18+) – Part of the Glitter Guts Dance Punk Circus.  Environmental Encroachment, Perfect Kiss, Blue Ribbon Glee Club, Clique Talk and Pure Magical Love also perform (with DJ sets by Front 312 and The Underground Dollar Store).  I’ve written quite a bit recently about the local garage rock duo that is White Mystery.  Francis Scott Key White drums in a simple but effective, straightforward manner that accompanies Miss Alex White‘s fuzzladen guitar and vocals nicely.  They also channel a more seventies influenced version of the White Stripes (on their facebook page, they cite Gary Glitter, MC5 and Black Sabbath as “artists we also like”).  Caught them at the Hideout Block Party last September and they were one of my favorite acts of the day.
