DJ Brett Koshkin Talks Final Dirty Honey And Moving To NYC

DJ Brett Koshkin has spun old soul and R&B 45s the first Saturday of every month at Boondocks since the bar first opened in summer 2007. In what has become a Boons rite of passage, he got his first noise ordinance ticket early last month.

His monthly "Dirty Honey" sets at Boons, featuring beautiful vinyl slabs by artists like ZZ Hill, Rufus Wood and Clifton White, are the things of crate-digging magic. Before Koshkin started bringing Dirty Honey to Austin, the event began with Boons, and every month his night has brought out a motley crew of listeners and dancers.

"When it started, it was mainly white twentysomethings having a good time," Koshkin says. Now you get middle-aged folks from Sunnyside to mods in their thirties. A real eclectic bunch with no false pretenses. Hell, even my 90-year-old grandmother has made it out a few times."
