Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

White Mystery/Dirty Fences/Jivviden

When: Sun., April 6, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Hailing from Chicago, this brother and sister glitter-rock duo are touring in support of their latest album, Telepathic. Songs like “Junglecat” and “Secret Garden” pack a heavy beat, messy guitars and Miss Alex White’s vixeny voice into tight melodies. Their lyrics sometimes seem a little contrived. The line from “Secret Garden” — “I don’t mind the sun sometimes / I can smell the roses in your hair” — sounds like something we’ve heard before (cough, Butthole Surfers, cough). Still, songs like “White Spiders” and “Buttheads from Mars” beg you not to take them too seriously. With catchy rock riffs and White’s chanting bordering on fake British accents in both songs, you can’t help but find yourself dancing to the ridiculous lyrics and jaunty drumming. (Trenholme)
