Pop Tarts Turns 6

Female pop artists band together

‘PopTarts’ – a Sydney-based collective of hundreds of independent original female pop music artists – is celebrating its sixth birthday with a showcase of six of the best ‘Tarts acts at The Basement nightclub on July 18/07.

‘PopTarts 6’ will feature performances from PopTarts’ founder and local music artist Amanda Easton as well as Robyn Loau, Evelyn Duprai and many more.

The birthday event will celebrate six years of PopTarts which, since July 2001, has included more than 500 local and touring artists at almost 300 regular showcase nights at Annandale’s Empire Hotel. Other PopTarts events have included ‘Tarts on Tour’ interstate shows and ‘Tarts for Timor’ charity gigs.

While Pop Idols fight it out on our television sets, these fully-financed artists are also using PopTarts to follow a more independent path to pop success and to share career opportunities and support.

In an era where live music struggles to keep its foothold in Sydney, the regular weekly Inner-West PopTarts events have been a welcome support to the local music community.

PopTarts 6’ will be held at The Basement in Reiby Place, Circular Quay, Sydney from 8:30pm (doors at 7:30pm). Tickets will be $18 plus booking fee from the Basement on (02) 9251-2797 or at www.thebasement.com.au, or Moshtix outlets.
