Hello and welcome to another edition of the Weekender. Enjoy!


White Mystery w. Good Habits, We Shave // The Mill // 11:00 PM // $7

Alex and Francis White make up the “fiery” bother/sister duo, White Mystery.  I put “fiery” in quotes not only because of their lively and relentless garage rock aesthetic, but also because well, they both have really crazy red hair. Having read other reviews and articles about this band it appears as though I have a journalistic obligation to mention that. White Mystery has two albums under their belt, each of which has been met with positive critical reception. Their live show has been highly praised as well by The Onion’s A.V. Club, The Huffington Post, The Chicago Tribune and MTV. The genre of throwback garage rock is a trend that still seems to be on the rise. There are so many bands that are trying to achieve a similar sound and style to that of White Mystery, and so many just miss the mark. White Mystery have been touring heavily and are getting ready to release their third album, Telepathic in April. Local acts Good Habits and We Shave open. Link!
