Live Evil Versus The Work Day

live evil san francisco walk out to rock out mexican party bus laurent martini

Have you ever sat slumped at your miserable computer at your excruciating job, staring blankly at an Excel spreadsheet that mocks your very existence but really secretly hoping that a heavy metal band would come and whisk you away to a magical land of booze and Satan? Sure, we all have.
 
Thursday, July 21st, office drones of San Francisco had their rockin’ prayers answered as the band Live Evil drove throughout the city in their Mexican party bus named Lola, picking up stray souls from their jobs for the third annual Walk Out To Rock Out. Whether you call it a public service or a public nuisance, Walk Out To Rock Out is a load of fun and Live Evil is the musical equivalent of a barrel of monkeys. Frontman Laurent Martini (who comes across like the love child of Nikki Sixx and Serge Gainsbourg) and his band of merry party animals strive to be the earthly incarnate of the spirit of rock & roll. Turning private nostalgia into performance art, all Live Evil songs were actually written by Martini during his teen years. This band’s mission of prolonged adolescence brings home the message that rock & roll, at its very core, is about divine youth. That and we’re never too old to rock.
 
Live Evil’s party bus started at the bar Zeitgeist at 9:00am. From there they picked up people on street corners and from office buildings, stopping at Union Square’s historic Gold Dust Lounge for a spontaneous show full of mayhem, madness, and confused tourists. They departed the Gold Dust at 2:00pm for The Hotel Utah where they played till 8:00pm.
 
I caught up with Live Evil’s Walk Out To Rock Out at the Gold Dust Lounge. Enjoy the mayhem and get on the bus!
