Flame-haired siblings Alex and Francis White of busy Chicago garage-rock duo White Mystery tell Gossip Wolf they’ve just wrapped up a European tour and will self-release a smokin’ new album, Telepathic, on Sat 4/20. More immediately, on Valentine’s Day at Schubas they headline a benefit for the Christopher Saathoff Foundation with Absolutely Not, Twin Peaks (see Soundboard), and Post Honeymoon. Saathoff played in Chin Up Chin Up and in a duo with Alex White (as Chris Playboy); he was killed by a hit-and-run driver while walking home from the Empty Bottle in 2004, and the foundation his family established in his name supports youth arts programs and other children’s charities.
