Undoubtedly you have heard by now that a man jumped to his death in front of both band and audience at last week's Swell Season show in Saratoga. If you were in the audience and want to talk to someone about what happened, the band has arranged for grief counseling via Kara, a Bay Area organization. Please see Swell Season's website for more info.

Just further proof of what lovely and generous people Glen and Marketa are, offering people solace in light of this tragic event.
