Just last night, I had the opportunity to attend a Heineken sponsored event thanks to invites from Benjamin and Heineken. It was the Heineken Green Room event, and I was quite pleased to meet up with so many other fellow bloggers that night. Heineken Green Room was held at KL Live in Jalan Sultan Ismail which kicked off by 8pm.

So there I was where everybody was pretty hyped up even before the party started. Heineken Green Room was to be graced by US indie darlings Gossip and Australian dance rockers Art vs Science as the headlining acts. Joining Gossip and Art vs Science were local acts Mini Compo, Twilight Actiongirl and a collaboration between openers Hypeem Beats and Jeehoe spinning a blend of dance beats.

I was pretty surprised a short body search was done for everyone that arrived, and they were rather thorough in searching the "curves" on my waist. It's all good I guess, for the safety of Heineken Green Room's guests. Good job security folks.

We were given a rather cool Heineken can opener door gift upon answering a short survey paper at the entrance. Check it out below, although I'm not too sure when I will actually use it. It looks nice, kind of like a huge Heineken badge akin to a Sheriff's badge from the movies.

The party kicked off with booming bassy music, the atmosphere was good, people were there, but somehow the mood to dance and move didn't come until much later in the night. I attribute it to the fact that there weren't any free flow of beers for the guests. We all know alcohol gets people moving, feed them alcohol and you will see the dance floor filled with bodies grooving to the music.

The night was good, with awesome friends to just chill out and have fun. My take on the event? I felt it was good, not great though as the crowd did not really warm up enough to dance the night away. I left feeling rather empty as if there was something missing. Nevertheless, I'm still hyped up for being able to catch Heineken Green Room this round. Thanks again Heineken for being given the chance to party out with friends.
