Pop Tarts Suck Toasted confronted a rough technological beginning of 2010: in February, the local-music-blog’s chief architect Patrick Duffy woke up find that Google had unceremoniously expunged the nearly five-year-old site’s archives, allegedly for repeated DMCA complaints. So even though PTST has been relocated and restored, Duffy could use some support for his dogged endurance, particularly at the inaugural Pop Tarts Suck Toasted showcase he’s assembled next Friday at Glasslands with the Sundelles, Sea Monster, and Brooklyn indie-brood trio ARMS, who will soon outgrow the ex-Harlem Shakes disclaimer. We’re giving away a pair of free tickets to Friday’s show; just send an e-mail with “Mr. Pop Tarts” in the headline, the name you want on the list to cdoderoatvillagevoicedotcom, and one winner will be picked at random. Thank you for making this dream come true. Next up: getting published in a ‘zine named after a taint.
