First off, I would like to thank you for sharing my Room For Squares nostalgia and purchasing a ticket to I’m Never Over You: Celebrating 15 Years of John Mayer’s Room For Squares. John Mayer’s first commercial album was a pivotal LP for me and is one of the albums I consider life-changing. This gig started out as a small idea and it is overwhelming to know the people’s response.
This is the first time for me / Indie Manila to handle such huge event. And being a noob, there was a little mishap. There was a booking/reservation confusion that happened on our end and 12 Monkeys. End of story: THE VENUE WAS OVERBOOKED.
The total number of people who purchased the ticket from the online store was exactly 498. And for June 10, an extra 200 people booked their tables 12 Monkeys. The bar can only handle 350 people. Hindi tayo kasya lahat. ^_^
This is a lack of better planning and judgement on both our sides and I sincerely apologize for it. This is definitely a learning experience for me as an event producer. So to be able to have a solution to this ‘good problem’ and accommodate everyone, 12 Monkeys suggested to have a SECOND NIGHT. After it was decided, I got to work and set up an organized ticketing system to be able to split the crowd and also accommodate others who weren’t able to buy the early bird tickets.
FIRST NIGHT will be this Friday, June 10 the original lineup: CLARA BENIN, REESE LANSANGAN, KAI HONASAN, LPG (SudxJensenxMiles), THE ESPASOULS, NIGHTS OF RIZAL, LIME, MARTTI FRANCA, and KR QUINON. The show will start at 8:30 sharp.
Are there tickets left for the FIRST NIGHT? Unfortunately, June 10 show is SOLD OUT. All 250 slots were booked + the 200 tables that were also booked at 12 Monkeys.
Are walk-ins allowed on June 10? No walk-ins will be allowed on June 10.
What should we bring to be able to enter 12 Monkeys on June 10? You have to bring the printed ticket that was sent to your e-mail when you booked your slot for the show. The ticket looks like this:
Each ticket has a unique QR code that will be scanned using the Yapsody scanner app before entering 12 Monkeys. We will be strict to be fair to everyone. NO TICKET, NO ENTRY.
When is the SECOND NIGHT and who will be performing? #RFS15 DAY 2 of the show is going to be next Friday, June 17 at 12 Monkeys featuring performances by JULIANNE TARROJA, REESE LANSANGAN, KAI HONASAN, LPG (SudxJensenxMiles), THE ESPASOULS, NIGHTS OF RIZAL, LIME, MARTTI FRANCA, and KR QUINON. The show will start at 8:30 sharp.
Can we purchase tickets to #RFS15 DAY 2? I gave all who purchased the early bird tickets to reserve their slot until MIDNIGHT TONIGHT JUNE 8. After midnight, slots will be opened for purchase. As of this writing, there are 79 slots left for the June 17 show. You can visit http://indiemnl.info/GigTickets to book your slot for June 17.
Is there another way we can be a part of #RFS15 DAY 2? Yes! 12 Monkeys will have 100 slots for reservation for the June 17 show. If you weren’t able to purchase a ticket from us, you can book a table on June 17 to be able to watch the show. You can book as early as now. You can contact them for reservations at 09175703222 🙂
Again, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting this event. I cannot put into words how overwhelmed I am about this immense support not only for John Mayer’s music but for the local independent music acts.
