Promoters busing students to Power Plant Live for "College Night" (updated)
Promoters are once again busing in students from area schools for a weekly "College Night" at Mosaic, a lounge in Power Plant Live.
The event, called Thursday Night Banger, is run by the local event promoter GoodLife Boys. It began last week, and the next one is set for tomorrow.
"We take a bunch of college kids and bring them out there," said GoodLife Boys co-owner Nino Sylvia.
"Towson, Loyola, Hopkins -- we've got all the students coming out there. ... The ratio of girls to guys is ridiculous." ...
"We absolutely don't permit it," Furst said. "We're completely against busing them down. ... We're trying to get away from the whole college image."
Mosaic's College Night is strictly 21+, Sylvia said, and last week's event sold out.
UPDATE: Furst stressed that this night has nothing to do with Power Plant Live, and none of Power Plant Live's staff is promoting it as a college night.
"We don't permit buses," he said. "If it's a matter of that event being canceled, absolutely. ... Mosaic does not hold a college night. Power Plant Live does not hold a college night."
ANOTHER UPDATE: I also spoke with Jake Miller, Mosaic's regional manager, who said the club knew nothing about the buses and emphasized that Mosaic only admits patrons who are 21 and older.
"It's not a college night," he said. "It's the furthest thing from a college night. ... We had nothing to do with this."
