Pencil This In: White Mystery, Archie Powell & The Exports At Double Door

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 30, 2013 8:00PM

Archie Powell & The Exports prepare for tonight's show at Double Door.
Do312 teamed up with Red Bull Sound Selects for tonight's bill and they'll done an excellent job of bringing together some of the bigger rising stars of the Chicago rock scene.

Headlining is White Mystery, a band we were on the fence about in the past but whose excellent last album and consistently fun live shows have converted us into genuine fans.

Archie Powell & The Exports have long been near the top of our "why aren't these guys hugely famous already list" because their straightforward good-times working man rock and/or roll is the sort of music anything with a heartbeat is going to find hard to resist. They've recently wrapped laying tracks down for their next album, so there should be a few new songs sneaking into tonight's set.

Mutts are undertaking the mission of proving that their combination of drums and piano-driven tunes is anything but a gimmick.

Daniel Wade used to play guitar in Treaty Of Paris but has now taken his rockin' pop hooks down the road of the solo career and has built up a nice local buzz around his shows recently.

Take all four acts together and put them on one stage and you've got a good reason to shake yourself out of that lingering food coma and get out tonight.

The show is tonight, November 30, at Double Door, 1572, N Milwaukee, 8 p.m., tickets are $3 with RSVP, 21+
