Posted Monday, February 27th, 2012 at 4:20 pm
White Mystery + Earthquake Party! + Dark Fog
(773) 276-3600emptybottle.com $3
Alarm bells may ring at mention of another Midwest brother-sister garage-rock duo, but don’t be led astray by said alarm. Yes, White Mystery is all of the above, but the sister in question is the ever-reliable Miss Alex White, and the brother is her actual bro Francis. The pair’s self-titled album offers the usual raw racket, but in this case the usual never fails to bring a dopey smile to our face. Underrated local act Dark Fog continue to pile on the effects pedals for astral blasts of swampy psychedelia. Somehow a mere trio, the heavy acid sound brings to mind Ride and Hawkwind.
