Electronic music show shut down at Quassy after suspected overdoses

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

In the constantly changing culture of synthetic drug use, officials were faced Saturday night with suspected overdoses from a drug called 2C-P. An electronic dance music show at Quassy Amusement Park was shut down late Saturday after a number of concertgoers were taken to hospitals for suspected drug overdoses, police said.

Sometimes I get the feeling I'm the only one who isn't using drugs.

It's not the same category of music. This stuff has nothing to do with the likes of NIN, KMFDM, Ministry, Meat Beat Manifesto and the like.

I agree. But Ministry's first album (which I'm pretty sure they disown) would fit in with Erasure. ;-)

What this really says is WE'RE OLD! We've become those old guys who "don't get" the modern trends!

A much as I LOVE Burning Inside, So What, and Thieves, I'm still willing to say that With Sympathy was awesome. Don't care if Alan likes it or not. Ain't got time for what you feel. (See what I did there?)

You're not. Never smoked a cig, never did drugs.

Having said that, I'm not on the bandwagon that drugs are for losers. There are plenty of reasons people do them. That's pretty much lumping people in a group again and judging them all.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Most people our age forgot about Ministry after Psalms 69 from 1992. I have to say they are missing out. They have some awesome more recent albums, my favorite being The Last Sucker.

...And I don't know if drugs are more or less popular within any one particular genre of music. Different genres have different popular drugs to go with them, for the most part.
