As part of the day-long festivities around the city of Boca Raton on the day of the debate, Rock the Vote, a group dedicated to getting out the youth vote, joined with Xbox, the Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau and Boca city government to put on the debate watch party starring the alternative band, Neon Trees, along with a carnival of sights. Organizers estimated it brought 1,000 people to the downtown mall.

The Concert was also being broadcast live worldwide to 40 million Xbox users.

“I am so proud of the young people here!” Boca Mayor Susan Whelchel boomed into the microphone as she was flanked by with two larger-than-life images of herself, with her hands up. “We hope you will Rock. The. Vote. Nov. 6,” she yelled to wild cheers.
