Having stomped mightily through the beery house shows of their Chicago hometown, White Mystery feels ready to bring a red scare to the world. It’s garage rock with mirth that these two do, strutting like the coolest kid at a roller skating party and dancing til the sweat rolls all the way down the fretboard. Feeling glad all over never goes out of style. This all ages set is part of White Mystery’s personal SXSW–they’re playing five shows in as many days at venues all over NYC. Kids are ginger-powered. With the Whines and Home Blitz.
