Before February turns into March, let’s take a moment to say “I <3 U” to Chicago’s White Mystery. The bro/sis duo lobbed a rock n roll grenade in the face of St. Valentinus on the loveliest of lovely holidays at the Empty Bottle on the 14th of February. From the handmade backdrop, to the carefully-crafted buzz pop minimalism, to the crotchrock gymnastics, White Mystery is a crash course in blitzkrieg blues-rawk. Check out the photos here! Notes of White Stripes, Ramones, and MC5 abound, mixing into a tumbler of brawling Roadhouse chutzpah. The lead songstress milks Grace Slick-powered vocals on top of a snarling bulldog guitar, while her partner in crime channels Keith Moon via Meg White. This act is not to be missed — catch the ginger pride of Chicago on tour, at SXSW and everywhere after.
