Man Commits Suicide Onstage At Swell Season Concert In San Jose

And here we have the worst possible thing: A man jumped to his death from the roof of San Jose's Mountain Winery during last night's Swell Season show, falling roughly three stories and landing within feet of frontman Glen Hansard. Our counterparts at the SF Weekly have eyewitness accounts, which I can't even bring myself to quote; the comments section, which mercifully hasn't devolved into an awful comedy routine like the Jones Beach Phish concert "horror leap" this week, offers further recollections and is legitimately harrowing. Not quoting that either.
