Last night, the W Hotel hosted a rock and roll party that featured the photographs of Mick Rock, and a live concert Fitz and The Tantrums and a DJ set by Thievery Corporation's Rob Garza and Eric Hilton.
Guests enjoyed open bar (well, the ones that had black wrist bands) and insanely good passed appetizers from the W fit for a groupie, like crabcake sandwiches and spicy pineapple bites.
