This weeks contest is titled Capitalized Words by Matt Gaffney

The answer to this week's contest crossword is a band that played at Woodstock that would complete the theme.

Good luck - especially to anyone under the age of 65

I’m always surprised to see [REDACTED] in a grid. Is that a familiar name to anyone not from the area?
Ashore. I think it's going to be a crowded beach - remember to social distance.

sharkicicles - posting entries is a no-no, even though they're not really the final solution. Please remove your post!

Done and on shore after some googling of setlists.

Got it! Quick but satisfying.
Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday.

Happier than a beached whale. I know we're due for another killer, but not this week.

I was just telling coworkers that I had never FaceTimed or used videoconferencing outside of a work context, and now all of a sudden I’m using it 3-4 times a week.

On the beach! 🏖 🍷 Time for merlot!

Enjoyed the puzzle, despite the fact that the phrase “...that would complete the theme” sort of terrifies me. I think I’ve had trouble with some of those in the past.

I bow to your incredible skills!

It may be very challenging to a lot of muggles.

As a relative noob, I feel extremely lucky to have seen the path as I filled-in the grid and to have made a miraculously quick connection to the meta. I could see my stoopid self spending hours & days. I will celebrate a streak of 1 with three pints of Guinness, three tall glasses of water, & a simple plain cheeseburger on toasted rye. Donating platelets, early tomorrow after too many weeks off, and need to build up the stores.

Best luck to everyone!

On shore, but too early on the west coast for a pint of Guinness. Guess I’ll have a cup of coffee.

Ashore!

Beach already getting crowded. May be tough to maintain needed distance.

Solved. Now for that pesky Downtimes meta. What is the next step? Don’t answer that.

On shore, and barely made page 1. Going to be a crowded one. Week 4 MGWCC might make up for it!
