Connecticut concert illnesses spark warning about new drug

ct drug overdose

(WABC) — Authorities are warning about a new synthetic drug that’s hitting the streets of Connecticut. Four teenagers were hospitalized over the weekend after police say they took the dangerous hallucinogenic drug called 2C-P. It happened at an electronic dance music concert at Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury. Suddenly four people in the crowd collapsed, almost simultaneously. Then three others started having medical trouble. “It was like a light switch went off,” said acting Middlebury Police Chief Richard Wildman. “Four people dropped from drug overdoses almost all at the same time.” Wildman said 2C-P takes effect three to five hours after using it and can overheat the body. It’s part of the “2C series” of synthetic compounds that have psychoactive and stimulant effects, are sold in blotter paper form or in dropper bottles and are sometimes mistaken for LSD, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. Wildman said officers used CPR and a defibrillator to treat a teenage male who wasn’t breathing and had no pulse. Police said about 1,200 young people attended the concert, which ended early because of the overdoses. The rave event was put on by Tight Crew of Providence, R.I., which says on its website that it has a strict, zero-tolerance policy toward drug use and violence. The incident comes on the heels of two fatal overdoses at a concert on Randalls Island, forcing city officials to shut down the final day of a music festival. These recent events have drawn attention throughout the law enforcement community.

Inspiration for the creation of the Youth Orchestra came from Dudamels widely acclaimed artistic vision, and his experience with Venezuelas El Sistema approach to music education – whereby free instruments and high quality music instruction are provided by community partners to students in communities which would not otherwise have access to these facilities. A simulcast of the YOLA/LA Phil Side-by-Side concert will be shown on a giant screen in Grand Park, and it will also feature a solo performance by legendary pianist Herbie Hancock – LA Phil Creative Chair for Jazz. Continuing the 10th anniversary celebrations, the subscription concert season has its Opening Night Gala on Monday September 30th. During this season, the LA Phil, led by Gustavo Dudamel and Esa-Pekka Salonen, presents a series of classics and premieres, with a host of outstanding soloists, many of whom have enjoyed a special relationship with the Orchestra since the opening of the Concert Hall. The Opening Night Concert is conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, with Yo-Yo Ma as soloist, in a program designed to represent the development of the Concert Hall – from conception to completion – with the music of Bach, Tchaikovsky, Ades, Mahler and Saint-Saens telling the story. Installations by video artist Netia Jones are a special feature of the program, and the concert opens with John Cages 433, providing a perfect opportunity to demonstrate the Concert Halls superb acoustics. The actual anniversary date, on October 23rd, will be marked by a uniquely Californian event – a special Green Umbrella program, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, featuring the first complete realization of LA composer Frank Zappas 200 Motels. Guest soloists appearing throughout this anniversary season include piano virtuosi Yefim Bronfman and Leif Ove Andsnes, percussionist Pedro Carneiro, baritone Peter Coleman-Wright, cellist Annssi Kartunen and violinist Leila Josefowitz. In its inaugural 2003-04 season the LA Phil introduced both World Music and Jazz to its repertoire, and Portuguese fado singer Mariza – who appeared in that first World Music series – returns for this anniversary season. Jazz takes centre stage as Dianne Reeves, Christian McBride and Herbie Hancock – all three LA Phil Creative Chairs for Jazz – collaborate in whats described as a one-of-a-kind jazz celebration. The season features two world premieres – Magnus Lindbergs new work for Cello and Orchestra and the Knussen realization of Peter Liebersons Shing Kham – both of which were commissioned by the LA Phil. Theres a US premiere as well – Brett Deans The Last Days of Socrates – a commission by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. September 25, 2013 (AP) This May 3, 2013 file photo shows Willie Nelson performing at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans. Gerald Herbert, file/AP Photo A missing toy armadillo with a connection to Willie Nelson has sparked a search in the New York suburbs. A stuffed armadillo beloved by a member of Nelson’s crew was stolen from the stage at The Capitol Theatre, in Port Chester, after a Nelson concert last Thursday, theater general manager Tom Bailey said. Grainy video shows a woman walking onto the stage as the crew packs up, boldly grabbing the armadillo and sauntering off with it, he said. The critter is known as Ol’ Dillo, he said, and is a treasured possession of Nelson’s monitor engineer, Aaron Foye. Theater workers looked through more video on Tuesday in hopes of identifying the woman, Bailey said. A posting on Nelson’s Facebook page asks for help finding the thief. And a commenter says, “We hang armadillo thieves in Texas.” Nelson’s publicist, Elaine Schock, told The Journal News she was unaware of Ol’ Dillo and didn’t know it had been filched. “When you go to a Willie Nelson show,” she said, “the last thing you notice is an armadillo.” Nelson, singer of such hits as “Always on My Mind” and “On the Road Again,” postponed his Wednesday concert in Carmel, Ind., according to his website, which didn’t cite a reason.
