That's a fabulous DVD! I pre-ordered their album, but still haven't gotten it yet. On the expected shipping date it says the 4th, so I guess they technically have another day and a bit to get it to me.

I'm really looking forward to seeing their show in a few weeks!

How horrifying -- during last night's concert at the Saratoga Mountain Winery in California, a man committed suicide by jumping off the roof, and landing on stage about three feet away from singer Glen Hansard.

What a cowardly way to go.

I was sitting in the 6th row on the right side of the stage when the man landed in front of us. The Swell Season's violinist had just treated the audience to a gorgeous Irish song while the rest of the band took a break off stage. Glen came back on stage and led us in a sing along to the first song his guitarist ever wrote. We all giggled and sang about "rocking out to the maximum." Then a man fell from nowhere onto the right side of the stage. There was no sound as he fell but an audible thud when he landed. He was wearing dark clothing. Since Glen had been playfully teasing his guitarist just moments earlier I thought it might have been a joke until Glen screamed for help. People began dialing 911 and members of the audience who were doctors or paramedics rushed to the stage and began giving CPR. We were told to stay in our seats so that ambulances could arrive quickly (without exiting concert goers clogging the roads). We watched him receive CPR for about 30 minutes. A crew member came to the microphone and asked if anyone could identify the man who had landed on stage. The crew put up a black curtain directly in front of everyone who was trying to help him. He had not been resuscitated by the time I left. What began as an amazing evening became a nightmare. My heart goes out to everyone who witnessed this and to the man's family and friends.

So sad. Swell Season are such good people. My thoughts are with them and the audience members who had to witness this.

Holy crap, that's disturbing. I feel bad for the band and the other concertgoers-what an awful thing to witness.

I think they're supposed to play in the Seattle area tomorrow night - I wonder if that's still on schedule? They must be so traumatized.

Yeah, everything's still on schedule. Glen tweeted comments about this just a bit ago: Glen Hansard (Glen_Hansard) on Twitter

Have fun .

Glad to see they're going to soldier on, I admire that. Hope all goes well with the show tonight for them . And Glen's comment on Twitter-very classy and respectful.
