Falling-Down Sober

The longest span of any American's life is from age 18 to 21. You're old enough to vote, own property, and carry a firearm, but you don't have the right to get shitty drunk at a bar? Brutal. Of course, everyone in the age range is boozing it on the quiet, but after three years of working the house-party circuit, it's easy to see how someone would want to leave the world of poorly mixed cocktails and sleeping on stained carpets. Good news is that we've found a way for the young’uns to tear it up. Fusion Reaction goes off with 10-plus DJs split between two stages. Patrons under 21 won’t be served alcohol, but there will be snow cones, go-go girls, live art, and massages to make up for it.
