Chicago’s sibling duo White Mystery bears more than a passing resemblance to another similarly named guitar-and-drum duo from the Midwest. But they’re hardly a White Stripes ripoff act, if that’s what you’re wondering: Sure, Alex White and her younger brother Francis crank out bare-bones, power-chord-heavy rock, but their songs are closer in tone to the fuzzy oddities you might hear on one of those ’60s Nuggets compilations. The Whites were part of 2015’s Volume lineup, but I first saw them three years earlier, crammed into the corner of Neato Burrito with 50 or so other late-night revelers. If this upcoming concert is anything like that one, it should be a sweaty, raucous, beer-soaked evening. And if we’re lucky, the band will throw handfuls of AirHeads — their namesake flavor, natch — out to the crowd.
