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.
