The Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue presents their ongoing show, “Violet Crown Follies,” a dazzling bi-monthly live band and variety burlesque show at 8:00 p.m. (doors at 7:00 p.m.) at the Spider House Ballroom. This show features live atomic rock-n-roll band Sonny and the Starfires with special guest international burlesque star FROSTINE SHAKE!

The Huffington Post calls their show “sassy and sexy…classy entertainment.”

The Violet Crown Follies is an ongoing burlesque residency, every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month featuring live music, comedy, drag, variety, and world-class burlesque performances in a swanky cabaret setting. The Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue is excited to play in this jewel-box of a theatre, where floor to ceiling red velvet curtains, an artfully appointed stage, and an aura of old Vaudeville add to the immersive experience. Guests can also look forward to saucy door prizes and goodie bags from Forbidden Fruit boutique.

“Eye-popping glamour…a burlesque troupe with a racy show that’s not to be missed,” writes Steven Moser of the Austin Chronicle.
Doors: 7:00 p.m.
Show: 8:00 p.m.
Tickets: $15 – $120
