EVENT | Samsung Galaxy S4 Preview Party

I've left the Toronto hustle and bustle for a two-week trip back to the west coast - but that doesn't mean I'll be putting my blogging on hold. I've got some exciting stuff planned for my Vancouver visit, so stay tuned!

On Thursday I attended the Samsung Galaxy S4 preview party at the Rocky Mountaineer, a cool train station-turned event venue in Vancouver. What made this party unique was that it was happening in two other cities simultaneously across Canada; in Toronto & Montreal. And they were being live-streamed on large screen monitors throughout the night so we could see what was going on.

There were booths set up for the public to see the brand new phone up close and try all of the cool features it offers, which includes:   
- 5-inch screen display
- 13 megapixel camera
- Dual camera - for those moments you're taking a photo and wish you could be in you can!
- Air view & air gestures

Take a look:

Former MuchMusic VJ and west coast native Jesse Giddings hosted the event. I met him back in Toronto and it was nice to chat with him over here in BC.

The musical guest of the night was Canadian indie-pop band Stars, fresh from their Coachella weekend. They played two sets throughout the event and the crowd was loving their fun and energetic performances.

Samsung was also on the hunt for Vancouver talent to share the stage, through the Infinite Possibilities contest. The winner was Gio Levy - such a great voice!

Each city had different musical guests(Walk Off The Earth in Toronto and Dragonette in Montreal), but they all had one in common: Feist was set to appear at all three. At the same time. How does that work exactly, you might ask? Well, a hologram version of the indie-pop singer were presented at each party. It was pretty cool, but definitely not the same as a live show.

Overall, it was a nice welcome back to BC and I had a great time! Thanks for having me Samsung!
