Jesse James Outlaw Draw



Jesse James Outlaw Draw


There's a new Mojo Sideshow in progress! Lonesome Liz's Wild West Show, featuring the ghosts of the James/Younger Gang, inspired by local history and centered on James' time in Lost River Cave. 


The first Sideshow, a Southern Gothic 'Faust' with the legend of the Crossroads as it's centerpiece, joined distinctly Southern artists with leaders of the New York scene. They included Molly Crabapple, Wes Freed, Katelan Foisy, myself and others from Achen, Germany to Hazard, Kentucky. The production also featured burlesque, fire juggling, magic tricks, and Outlaw Country by J. B. Beverley and I as well as choreography by Becca Bernard, M.F.A.

I've had input as the songs were written and the existing script revised not only from multiple Grammy Award winning Americana artists but also from Beat Poet Charles Plymell and the grandson of one of the Younger's who rode with Jesse. I'm even more excited about this production than I was the first, especially as I've also had the benefit of hearing local James tales and lore.

Outlaw Magazine will be filming some of the songs from the show in the most authentic setting imaginable, the haunted former hotel/ brothel above Labold and Sons on the square. The place remains virtually unchanged since Jesse James' day. New York artist Jonathan Wagner has joined the production crew and will be drawing from set photos both for the magazine and other promotional purposes.

Join me at Labold and Sons on Tues. to be part of the project! All you have to do is dress up like an Outlaw, (if you haven't already seen, the place is FULL of amazing costumes in the making), and pose for a photo. Everyone who participates will have a copy of Jonathan's drawing of them and will also receive credit in Outlaw Mag, along with links to any of your own music/art etc.

If you'd like to be part of the video too, of course you're welcome! Email me for more details. We're still setting times and can, for photos, work with your schedule. The date here i s tentative, depending on availability/heat/etc.
