Swell Season Pays for Counseling for Fans Who Witnessed Suicide


After a man committed suicide during the band’s concert in California last week, the duo — who starred in the movie Once — will be paying for grief-counseling sessions for the fans who watched the 32-year-old jump from a roof covering the outdoor stage. A spokeswoman for a Palo Alto–based counseling center said the band had paid for four group counseling sessions that any of the estimated 1,900 audience members may attend for free. [AP]
