Konocopia celebrates the life of Boston DJ

Kayana Szymczak for The Boston Globe


The Boylston Street nightclub Machine hosted the second annual Konocopia dance party on Saturday night in honor of Kris Kono, a beloved Boston DJ who died at 46 of complications from cancer in 2011. The night raised money for a scholarship that will go to a woman who attends the Berklee College of Music. Revelers included DJ Mocha, a.k.a Mel Andrade (above), who spun tunes and danced in a Konocopia T-shirt.
