Burning Itch, White Mystery
Tennessee band Burning Itch play lo-fi, muddy punk music that is as infectious as whatever inspired the band's name. There are no hooks here, nor anthems of revolt to entice listeners, just pure, raw aggression, which is refreshing. They are joined by Chicago band White Mystery. An oddball, brother/sister duo, White Mystery is an outstanding garage act fronted by Alex White whose powerful voice and fuzzy guitar sound make her difficult not to watch. The band was named one of the Top Ten of 2010 by the Chicago Tribune, come down to the Replay Lounge, 946 Mass. tonight and see for yourself why.
