PVMTS & WSTR w/ special guest Hold Close at The Loft
Sunday, October 28th at 6:00pm
PVMNTS is a 3 piece pop-punk band, featuring Wilfredo Ramirez, Tyler Posey of TEEN WOLF fame, and Nick Guzman. PVMNTS released a demo of their song ‘Jumping Stairsets’ early-2018, and began recording their debut EP ‘Better Days’ in March 2018.
WSTR had a swift rise as part of the burgeoning U.K. pop-punk scene that saw them signed to independent American label No Sleep Records before they’d even played their first show. Hailing from Liverpool, the band, made up of Sammy Clifford on vocals, Alex Tobijanski on bass, and Kieren Alder and Danny Swift on guitar, cited American groups like blink-182, Sum 41, and New Found Glory as major influences.
