One of the hottest reasons I've heard this month to venture out into the sub-zero chill is the tribute by Chicago's hardest-rocking burlesque troupe, Hot & Heavy, to that immortal Pink Floyd epic, "The Wall."

According to visionary dancer Viva La Muerte, the show will "take burlesque to a new frontier as the group performs the album in its entirety during a spectacular two-act show" at the Viaduct Theater, 3111 N. Western Ave, starting at 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 8 and 9, and again on Jan. 15 and 16.

Among the participants: Red Hot Annie, Paris Green, Holly Wouldn't, Ms Bea Haven, Mae the Belly Dancer, Miss Vine, Maria the Purple Goddess, Honey Le'Fleur, Sultry Susan, Ellie Noise, the Dolls of Doom, Stage Door Johnnies -- and of course Ms. La Muerte and Pink Floyd.

Tickets are $15 in advance through www.TicketWeb.com or $20 at the door; visit www.vivalamuerte.us or myspace.com/hotandheavyburlesque for more information.
