It wasn’t a secret for long in the neighborhood. Kayakers and boaters on Lake Union were trying to get close enough for a free show, reports GeekWire’s Adam Rubens — who, along with the rest of his neighbors, got himself a free concert out of the deal.

The interns went home happy, apparently.

Score one for Microsoft in the tech talent wars.
