Christmasy jazz musician playing at Giant

The other day a friend noticed that there was a keyboard player in Giant, playing jazzy versions of Christmas music. The musician is Marcus Johnson, and he was there as part of a deal -- if you buy Coke products at Giant, you get a free CD by him.

Deals aside, I think this is cool, having musicians play at local stores. The occasional musicians outside the Metro are generally pretty good and I always like seeing them. (The guys will bullhorns, not so much.) The Community Marketplace also had musicians, which was nice. I'd like to see this sort of thing more often.

Everything Local is cool. I can make anything cool by putting LOCAL before it.

Would you rather the musicians played far away?
