Swell Season Offers to Foot the Bill for Fans’ Grief Counseling

Billboard.com reports that the Swell Season has promised to pay for four group counseling sessions, free to all of those in the audience at their California show last week where a 32-year-old man jumped to his death in an apparent suicide, landing just a few feet away from singer Glen Hansard onstage. Everything about this whole situation is so sad, though this proves the stand-up character of Hansard and Markéta Irglová and will hopefully aid in sorting through what must be an emotional, confusing time for all those involved.
