One of my favorite things about Chicago is that, not matter what you're in to, there's a show for you. Do you like burlesque side show and fetish acts? Check out Festival of Flesh.
The last Thursday of every month, Arkham Noise Productions brings Festival of the Flesh to Lucky Number Grill. An evening of "variety," you can see anything from modern burlesque to fire breathers, glass-walkers and even a fetish act here and there. Tomorrow night is the company's Sexy Spring Show, hosted by gothic illusionist Ron Fitzgerald (you have to check out his website) and featuring special guest Scarlett Deville, a punk burlesque performer.
You can catch Festival of Flesh at 10:00 p.m. and midnight at Lucky Number Grill. Admission is $7 and audience members can take advantage of a number of drink specials.
And if you'd like a little preview of what you might see at the show, click here. Warning: this is NOT safe for work...and it's kind of awesome.
