BWW Review: P.S. UNDERGROUND at We Can't Tell You's A Secret

It's 12:01 a.m. and a message slides into your inbox. It holds a secret location and a hint - what you should wear - and it all means your next adventure with P.S. Underground is beginning to unfold.

P.S. Underground is a "secret" club Palm Springs insiders have been flocking to for over five years. If you want to be part of this merry madness, you're going to have to sign up on their website. It's easy peasy, just enter your email address, and bada bing, bada boom, you're in the know.

Inside the wildly creative, and slighty-demented minds of Producer Michael Fietsam and Chef Dave Horgen are so many different shows it's hard to keep up. From cabaret-styled entertainment, to themed events like Sitcom, a celebration of all those great shows you loved in the 60s and 70s. And you're encouraged to wear your pajamas, while snacking on newly imagined meals of the era.

If you've seen The Cavern, you know it's all about the British Invasion - that's music, not countries - and featured local celebrities The Gand Band with Dion Khan as well as one of the valley's favorite entertainers, singer and DLT winning actress Francesca Amari. If you're looking for something more theatrical, P.S. Underground's Halloween event Bite will bring on the laughs as well as the scares and features other local favorites. This year it was Robbie Wayne, Siobhan Velarde, Tod MacCrofsky, and Kellie McQuinn. For Sitcom it was Amari, Gilmore Rizzo, Jeff Stewart, Laurie Morrison, and MacCrofsky. Whatever show you decide to see, be prepared to expect the unexpected.

Fietsam and Horgen have cultivated a huge following of fans and fun-goers, and if you don't know the people seated next to you, you will by the end of the evening. If you're at one of their themed Gand Band shows, there's a 99% chance you'll dance with them too.

Upcoming shows for P.S. Underground include this weekend's Beat which their website describes thusly:

..."The wayback machine is set to 1965. Teen music is taking over the airwaves. Every town is adding TV variety programs to showcase local talent. Philadelphia had American Bandstand. Cleveland had Upbeat. Nashville had Night Train. LA had The Lloyd Thaxton Show. Chicago had Soul Train. Houston had The Beat.
