Dutch DJ TiŽsto played a successful set at the Ocean Club Friday night in Quincy before the weekend took a dark turn with two more suspected drug-related deaths at an electronic dance music show in New York City this weekend.
After visiting the Quincy venue, TiŽsto went on to play Electric Zoo in New York City Saturday night where two concert-goers died of a suspected drug overdose of MDMA, a pure form of ecstasy commonly referred to by its street name, Molly. Electric Zoo is an annual electronic dance music festival held during Labor Day weekend. The third day of the festival, Sunday, was canceled following these incidents.FULL ENTRY
