Music: A suicide at a Swell Season show: A Swell Season show? Really?

  • What an awful incident. Just awful. To the jerk who’s ready to pull out a “Falling Slowly” joke here: Don’t. During the show at Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Calif., someone reportedly jumped from the roof of the stage and fell in front of singer Glen Hansard. Which, as you might imagine, is kind of a shocking sight to see at an outdoor concert by a group that became famous from an extremely sweet movie. Our prayers, and theirs, are with the person’s family and friends. source

  • Glen Hansard • Lead singer of The Frames, who recently broke up with his on-screen/off-screen musical partner in the Oscar-winning 2007 movie “Once,” Marketa Irglova. That, my friends, is the biggest news story of the year. But wasn’t it a really great ride while it lasted? • source
