Porn and Chicken at Evil Olive, August, 15 2011

The motley crew known as So Ready to Bang (SRTB) has been professionally partying since what seems like preschool. That’s why its Monday-night Evil Olive rager, Porn and Chicken, has been one of Chicago’s craziest nights out for the last two and a half years. The DJs, bartenders and troublemakers come from a variety of backgrounds but have a single goal in mind: Make you lose yours on the dance floor.

After more than 100 Porn and Chicken events, plus offshoots around the country, SRTB is finally giving the kids a taste at Lincoln Hall on Friday 22. Appropriately titled Born to Bang, it’s the party’s first 18 and up event. TOC sat down with the gang to hear its wildest Porn and Chicken memories, the ones they were conscious for, anyway.

Which night so far stands out as your craziest?
Dan Dwyer, DJ
The Four Loko Banger. It’s impossible to top that. By 12:30 we were all blackout drunk; even the videographer was blacked out. That was the first appearance of the CO2 tank and Dom’s ass.
Fei Tang, host
You could say it was like being in a full-on porn.
DD
There was this fortysomething woman giving this dude a blow job. But nobody around them even fucking cared, everyone was just dancing.

Any other highlights?
Mandi Black, bartender
Dom flying off the bar with the CO2 tank
Dom Brown, bartender
I don’t actually remember that, I just saw the video.
MB
He was spraying it on everyone. The force of the canister propelled him backwards, off the bar and into the bartenders. All the bottles fell down.

What about favorite themes?
DB
Aesthetically speaking, it was the Mad Max banger. We dressed to the nines. We had these shoulder pads on, so we went in twice as hard as we usually do.
Orville Klein, DJ
I rode my motorcycle out onto the floor, Mandi hopped on the back, we rode all the way up to the DJ booth, and I started playing.

How about the dancers?
OK
The first Mardi Gras in 2010, that really set the standard for nudity. Girls were going down on each other in the cage, on the bar, in the DJ booth, upstairs, in the bathroom, downstairs, it’s like—
MB
There are things that happen here. What it comes down to is there are no inhibitions. Whether or not we see it or technically “condone” it—
FT
What happens at Porn and Chicken stays at Porn and Chicken.
MB
That’s what Porn and Chicken is all about.
DB
We get all different walks of lifestyle in here, but the one thing we focus on is making sure we shove this down your throat: It doesn’t matter who the fuck you are, how popular you are, what you’re wearing, what your aspirations are. Once you walk in this building, you’re just as evil as the next person, and you have every opportunity to just free yourself and dance to the music. No inhibitions and no judgment. In this house, you can do whatever you fucking want. You know what my favorite moment of Porn and Chicken was? All of ’em.

Porn and Chicken takes over Lincoln Hall for Born to Bang on Friday 22, and goes down every Monday at Evil Olive.
