If you're looking for way to heat up your Saturday night, the Fly Honeys have a show you don't want to miss. For one weekend only, the Inconvenience presents one of the best burlesque shows we've ever seen. The diverse mix of talent on stage provides a unique cabaret-style lineup of tantalizing dance moves, great music and humor.

The Fly Honeys were devised by Erin Kilmurray and Mary Williamson and are comprised of burlesque performers, singers, dancers, actors, puppeteers, musicians, and comedians. Mary Williamson hosts the show and adds a saucy sense of humor to an already fantastic lineup. If this year is anything like last year, in addition to seeing some sexy ladies, expect some hot men on the stage too. Immediately following the show, there will be an afterparty featuring DJ Swaguerilla and a photobooth by Glitterguts.

The Inconvenience is a community of interdisciplinary artists who create, produce, and curate work with the goal of creating "a new way of experiencing art through a collaboration of music, theater, dance, fine art and celebration." All proceeds from the show will go to support their 2012 artistic programming which features the return of Hit the Wall at Theater on the Lake, a block party, and a collaborative dance & food event.

A limited number of tickets are still available for this evening's show, which starts at 9:30 p.m. General admission tickets, which include entrance at 9 p.m. and 1 drink ticket are $20, VIP tickets include entrance at 8 p.m. for the pre-party reception, 4 drink tickets, VIP seating, fly honey bites and a Fly Honey waiting on you. VIP tables are also available. The show takes place at Redmoon Theater at 1438 W Kinzie St.
