Owners of the Roxy nightclub in Providence will be defending themselves in front of the cities licensing board Thursday afternoon. The hearing was called after half a dozen college students were taken to the hospital during a controversial party tour held an event there last month

“I'm Schmacked,” which rented out the club, tours colleges across the country. The group throws wild parties and film students. They then posted those videos to the Internet.

The city's licensing board will meet with Roxy owners at 1 PM to decide whether the club should be penalized.
