House of Blues closed while police probe apparent overdoses

Pounding electro beats filled the cavernous House of Blues Tuesday night as a mostly college-age crowd danced elbow-to-elbow to tunes spun by popular young German disc jockey Zedd. But after the show ended and the lights came on about 12:15 a.m. Wednesday, three people inside were down, apparently from drug overdoses.

Authorities said they might have taken a form of ecstasy known as Molly, a controversial drug that has recently soared in popularity in some cities.
