With Porn and Chicken, DJs Dom Brown and Orville Kline have created the wildest and easily the most unique dance party in the country. Birthed in Chicago, a city that's home to some of best house music going, Porn and Chicken has become a household name from the Windy City to Honolulu. We spoke with Brown and Kline about the party and what they have in store for Denver this weekend.

Westword: What is Porn and Chicken, and what does it mean to bring the show?

Dom Brown: Pretty much, Porn and Chicken is a dance party we throw in Chicago, and we also throw the party in a couple different states. We do Porn and Chicken in Honolulu four times per year, and there was a point when we were doing it in Denver four times per year. We hit a point where we weren't doing it that much, and it's one of our friend's birthdays, so we are coming back out and bringing the party. Porn and Chicken is basically just soft-core or hardcore porn playing while we serve some fried chicken, and we just party as hard as possibly can.

How did it come together? Is it geared towards a certain genre or is it just a full on party?

Orville Kline: We cater the music to the party. It depends. We cover a lot of different genres, whether it's electro, dubstep, trap or really whatever. If we are playing a tech-house party, we play tech-house. Sometimes we play a lot of drum-and-bass, but it really depends on the crowd and the venue. We aren't opposed to any kind of music.

Have you ever caught any flack?

Oh man, come on, of course.

What do you say to that?

DB: You take it with a grain of salt. Not everyone is on-board with the forward movement we are trying to do. It's a big in-your-face thing. We don't conform. When you book Porn and Chicken, we are gonna bring exactly that.

Have you ever been booked for a gig, and the promoters didn't know what they were getting?

DB: I think the thing about it is, we set the precedent that when you hear Porn and Chicken, you know exactly what you are going to get.

OK: When you look at the name Porn and Chicken, you know what you are getting into. There have been a lot of places that have cancelled the booking, or booked it and realized it may not work for them. Usually that gets cleared up beforehand, so no one is really surprised when we show. It's usually worked out.

There are some cities and towns that are a lot more bible-belt-yielding that are anti-porn, and completely against us, so they won't even book us, or want to be associated with that name. But, for every town that doesn't want us, there are ten other places that do, so it's not really that much of an issue.

It sounds like you've cornered the market?

DB: We are definitely the first ones to do it.
