Brad Wiegmann is a national security lawyer for the Department of Justice in Washington. He dedicates this puzzle to his mother, "a voracious reader, talented knitter, mahjong maven and all-round supermom." He says he's never personally seen any of the musical artists named in the puzzle's theme clues, but he did once attend a 23-Across concert.

Brad's last Times puzzle, Crossword Buff appeared in February.

You'll want to put on your silly puns hat before you begin.
