How’s this for an intern bash?

Microsoft’s summer interns received a surprise at Seattle’s Gas Works Park tonight: a Maroon 5 concert.

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.

Looks like at least some of the neighbors were also pleased.

Score one for Microsoft in the tech talent wars.

Here are more scenes from the evening, from Twitter, including this great shot by SeattlePI.com photographer Josh Trujillo from a helicopter overhead.
