Man Kills Himself At Swell Season Show

    Here’s some morbid news: A man reportedly killed himself at a Swell Season show in California yesterday, reportedly throwing himself from a building near the stage at Saratoga Mountain Winery and landing on an amp near lead singer Glen Hansard. Here’s what a witness told SF Weekly:

    “Glen was just finishing a little song that one of his band members had made up,” one witness told SF Weekly. “The crowd was singing along with him and he was looking for the band member … I just happened to look up and I saw this guy falling from the top of the roof on the right side of the building behind the stage. He landed about three feet to the left of Glen on a speaker and he was motionless, like a rag doll.”

    The man died late last night. The band released this statement:

    “The band, crew and all involved with them are shocked and saddened by the unfortunate events of last night,” the statement said. “Their hearts go out to the victim and his friends and family.”

    I can’t imagine a worse thing to see at a concert. [Spinner]
