Orville Kline: Porn And Chicken

Orville Kline: Porn And Chicken

Orville Kline is so ready to bang.

All over the great city of Chicago, he’s making banging tunes, throwing banging parties and probably banging, well, you see where else this could go.

With his distinctive red and black mohawk, he’s an easy guy to spot. You can find him every Monday holding it down with his partner Dom Brown at the Evil Olive, gettin’ nasty as the man behind the decks of Porn And Chicken. We had the chance to catch up with him after his set at North Coast Music Festival; talk about his production work, his love for his city and the future of his brand, and we got to check out the Porn and Chicken madness ourselves. Definitely a crazy few days.

Kline is a hard working man, and all the effort he puts into his songs and parties really pays off. He was honored by the way his people came out to represent at North Coast. Even though he was given an early set on Sunday, the people came out to represent in droves.

“I was surprised how many people showed up as soon as it opened just to see me play, it was pretty cool,” he said of the large crowd that gathered around the local stage. “(The whole weekend has) been awesome.”

When you see how Kline get’s down, it’s easy to understand why hundreds would get out before noon to take part in the action. Outragously themed parties aside, his approach to production is more akin to the energy of a punk or metal band, the sort of outfits in which he got his musical start. His tracks have a dark and heavy vibe; nasty, sexy bangers to drop once the crowd is nice and sweaty.

And from what we can tell, it’s definitely working.

“We played another small festival in Chicago at Wicker Park and when we played my song we actually started a mosh pit,” he said. “I couldn’t explain , it was awesome.”

The same balls-to-the-walls vibe translates at his Porn and Chicken parties. Yes, there is fried chicken for the chowing, and hard core porn plays on the club tvs all night long.

Porn and Chicken: Dirty Little Secret

The party comes with a guideline, four rules to help you reach the peak party experience.

1)No water

2)No pictures (What happens at Porn and Chicken, stays at Porn and Chicken)

3)You must get black out drunk

4)At 2 a.m., when Dom says take your shirt off, you take your fucking shirt off.

Any ladies who get topless (bras are okay) and climbs onto the bar gets a free bottle of vodka for their friends. I think it goes without saying 2 a.m. at this establishment is a lil rowdy.

And the craziest part is, this all goes down on a Monday. How is it Kline can keep up a wildly successful weekly, year after year, on what is traditionally the most boring day of the calendar?

“The people that go out and party on a Monday night are not your typical 9-to-5 day job people,” Kline said. “A lot of industry people come out … They party for a living kinda so this is they’re chance to go out and party for real. I don’t like partying as much on the weekends cause all the amatuers come out.”

But it’s not like the good people of PnC are walking around with their noses in the air, everyone is welcome at the Evil Olive. Kline said it’s the inclusive nature of the party that helps make it successful. Whether your a dubsteppin bass head, an electro-freak hipster or an old-fashioned Chicago house veteran, PnC is the party for you.

“Chicago’s a really big city, there’s no one Chicago scene,” Kline said. “The cool thing I like about porn and chicken is we kinda merge all the different scenes together … We get all those people together to make a cool, unique party.”

And with each passing year, Kline has worked to keep the over-the-top edge of PnC ahead of the rest. What was considered hard and crazy four years ago is now more mainstream. Top 40 radio is littered with electro and dubstep undertones, groups like L.A. joksters LMFAO are in heavy rotation, so Kline has worked to be sure he digs deep enough to bring his hardcore fans exactly what they need.

“I do a lot of different types of parties, I definitely spend a lot of time working on my sets to make them special,” he said. “Most of the stuff I do’s not normal anyway.”

So what’s next for Kline and his quest to stay on the edge? Well, he’s got an EP coming out soon. You can get your grubby hands on it from his website. And there may be a Porn and Chicken tour in the works, so look out for Kline, Dom and the crew in your hometown. We know we’d love to see PnC blaze a trail of bang through Florida.

But until then, Kline is on a mission to keep Chicago on it’s toes, working hard to keep Chicago grounded in it’s roots, but always looking toward the future.

“I’m excited to see the cool new stuff always coming out of Chicago.”

So are we Mr. Kline, so are we.
