(NECN: Scot Yount, Boston) - The Boston Police are investigating the overdose death of a 19-year-old woman from New Hampshire that occurred here at the House of Blues early Wednesday morning.  
A 24-year-old woman is still in the hospital, along with another man in his 20s.
According to investigators, the three people did not know each other.

All were attending a concert here by Russian DJ Zed.
According to police reports, an ER nurse found two pink pills in the victim's jeans pocket and a white powder substance on her, as well.
Toxicology reports are pending.

The City of Boston's Licensing board is waiting for a completed police report before it will discuss the matter, according to the board's chair.
After the report is made public, the board will vote to decide whether to take any action.
Records show the House of Blues has had its license suspended in the past for minor infractions, including blocking egress, an employee fighting with a patron and a warning for serving alcohol to a minor.
Right now, The House of Blues is voluntarily shut down, and there is now word on when it will reopen.
The concert venue released a statement that read in part, "One individual has unfortunately passed away and our thoughts go out to their family and friends for their loss.  This mater is under investigation and we are continuing to work with local officials."
The DJ Zed who was performing the night of the overdose tweeted: "Love and respect to those in pain right now.  Our hearts go out to you."
