Tough grid, easier meta!
Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.

I had the meta before I finished the grid, mainly because I'd never heard of the 18D movie, 30A band, or 33A movie and was totally stuck with the two blank squares where they cross.

I don't mind using google (within reason) to solve a meta, and I always google to verify everything in the grid of a meta puzzle anyway. But I don't love needing it just get the grid completed.

Got it! First time on the first page for me - Mojito please!!!

The band at 30A really does do some cool videos, like this one with a huge Rube Goldberg machine.

Got it! On shore. Grid wasn't too tough. Meta came quickly. One piece was slightly unsatisfying.
