A No-Show at Troy Atrium Causes Bedlam in the Streets
What happens when you and 500 of your college friends take a bus to a concert and it’s cancelled? What do you do? Where do you go? And more importantly, can you get your money back?
According to a story in the TimesUnion.com, there was a music show advertised on Facebook to celebrate a homecoming weekend for SUNY Albany students. Many kids paid in advance for it, and were taken to downtown Troy by buses that were contracted by the promoter, allegedly Boss Cross Entertainment.
Well, guess what? The concert was cancelled when they got there, and the kids had nowhere to go. Interestingly enough, everyone thought they were going to go berserk, being college kids (cuz you know how THEY are, lol). Many many cops were called to the scene just in case.
Well, surprise! No arrests, no one injured, and no property damage. Kudos to the kids for that.
The jury is out as to whether they will get their money back if they pre-paid, which is “ridic,” to quote our very own Bethany. I’m just glad it didn’t get out of hand, which would reinforce the stereotype of irresponsible pot smoking college kids who can’t be controlled.
