Rent it Right
If you want to save your tenancy, consider an approach that will not depend on the legal principles just explained (as you see, if the landlord can produce evidence of substantial disruption, your technical defense may not do you much good). Instead, consider speaking with the landlord and the neighbors and promising to refrain from parties like this in the future. If your landlord considers you a good tenant otherwise, it might work.
