Samsung Focus, available exclusively at AT&T, presented the party which featured performances from TV on the Radio, the Kills, OMD, the Vaccines, OFF!, Smith Westerns, Young the Giant, Dom, Electric Child, and 28 North.

Guests at the party enjoyed complimentary Sparks, Miller, and BlackBeard Spiced Rum drinks, and had the chance to goof off with Yo Gabba Gabba characters who arrived courtesy of Case-Mate. VIPs enjoyed the best view in the house from the Xbox Kinect VIP area on the balcony.
