Soundtrek and Toledo Music Expo

. May 29, 2012.

Two Toledo forces are set to present a powerhouse weekend in the Northwest Ohio music world—and did so unknowingly. When the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo scheduled their latest creation, Soundtrek, on Friday, July 22, they had no clue JL Entertainment booked the Toledo Music Expo for the next day, Saturday, July 23. Even though the events remain separate, cross-promotion and idea sharing have been strong, giving cause to celebrate one hell of a rockin' weekend. Here's the breakdown:

  • On July 22, from 7pm-1am, Soundtrek invades Downtown Toledo, with more than 40 bands and entertainers in 15 venues, all connected by three buses running a loop. A wide variety of genres will be represented, from garage rock and indie to bluegrass and folk to jazz, blues and hip-hop. Wristbands are $15  in advance and $20 the night of, which allows access to all venues and free bus rides. www.acgt.com.
  • On July 23, from 4pm-12am, the Toledo Music Expo takes over the Erie Street Market, 237 S. Erie St., with approximately 20 different musical acts. The Expo is still looking for bands, vendors, sponsors and volunteers. If interested, e-mail toledomusicexpo@gmail.com. For more info, www.toledomusicexpo.com
