Crazy Rhythms

· By Aaron · Published 2 months ago

Constructor's Note: Medium-difficulty 15x15 themed puzzle. I was surprised at how quickly the grid filled even if there's a bit of glue in the SE area. Feedback always welcome.

        Thanks! From living in NYC the early/mid-2010s I always think of the rock club before the actual stadium. I was glad for the opportunity to memorialize this venue even if it's not notable enough for, say, a NYT puzzle.
