This April, the Jigglewatts will celebrate Bettie Page’s birthday and that famous naughty but sweet exhuberance with a wild 1950s-era shindig! Tune in as they honor Bettie, Tempest, pin-ups of all stripes, and get down and dirty with that sinful rock ‘n’ roll. The show is an interactive experience, and pin-up or 1950s attire is encouraged. Hosted by the ever-talented Jade Esteban Estrada.
The Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue has joined with Maggie Mae's "Gibson Lounge" to bring an ongoing weekly show every Friday night in downtown Austin with two shows at 8:00PM and 11:00PM.
