Psychoneedles Pleases Crowd at Fort Salem
By Lawrence Hillis

SALEM – “We need reservations to see Psychoneedles!?”  This was the cry that resounded throughout Salem as the triumphant Cabaret debut of Psychoneedles commandeered the stage at the Fort Salem Cabaret this past weekend.

Those unfortunate souls expecting lawn seating were disappointed and turned away as Psychoneedles, quite fit for SPAC or the Pepsi Arena, deigned to perform for a series of small audiences.

Though first mention of the name Psychoneedles may strike you as terrifying and reminiscent of a punk rock lyric, attendees were pleasantly surprised by the group’s mellow and matured rock tone.  Based out of a country/folk style (not country western we are told) which predates the Great American Songbook, Psychoneedles’ sound was full and driven and its power resounded throughout the cabaret room.

The members themselves are quite versed in life and music, from a Patti Smith veteran  to a former British rocker and even an Emmy award winning filmmaker…lending credence to their words, and power to their raw emotions.

Psychoneedles’ sound is mandatory on a “must hear before death”  list and others have already discovered this, especially women named Phoebe apparently, as the internet continues to spread their great skill ever outward.

Though their time at the Cabaret has come and gone, Psychoneedles’ passing brings ever more honor and reputation to the Fort Salem Cabaret, and its owners, Jay and Lynne Kerr.  With the couples’ past experience and recent successes, it brings into ever clearer reality the flourishing life of the cabaret and makes it ever more apparent that those who have not attended a show and experienced the music and the mouth watering refreshments are missing out quite badly.

As such, this weekend “Tap into Your Heart” will be appearing at the Cabaret and there is still room for you.

Containing the tapping flicks and magical tricks of an experienced showman, this one weekend venue is not to be missed, so make it your job to be there!
