Andover cutie Martin Johnson, who fronts the (locally bred) national pop act Boys Like Girls, was spotted spending quality time this week with “High School Musical’’ actress Ashley Tisdale, who appeared in the video for the band’s single “Love Drunk.’’ The two celebrated New Year’s Eve in New York and then flew back to Los Angeles on Monday. Boys Like Girls has been on a break to pursue solo projects, but the band says it’s back together and working on another album. Johnson’s bandmate, fellow local John Keefe, tweeted on Monday, “#BLG3.’’ We’ll assume that’s a reference to the band’s third album.
