It was just last week (Apr. 18) that 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub teased on Facebook that the popular gig venue would soon open its doors in Ortigas.

With Terno Recordings acts UDD, Maude, and Lenses, the new site of 12 Monkeys in El Pueblo Real de Manila held its soft opening on Wednesday night (Apr. 26).

Maude drummer Dane Policarpio posted on Facebook about his experience at the new 12 Monkeys: “Solid nung bagong 12 Monkeys kasi hindi na nakatago kaming mga drummer.” He also critiques the venue’s sounds, especially from the stage with equipment not being fully utilized yet, but promises it would sound better once everything’s settled in.

Luis Azcona, vocalist of Maude, shared a video from the night of 12 Monkeys’ soft opening in Ortigas, along with a behind the scenes clip of UDD announcing their upcoming Canada tour in June.
