08.19.10 : (not so) swell season concert

(hard to find a positive in this. picture taken with my iphone as no cameras were allowed.)

 

a man leapt to his death at the concert this evening. we were in the third row so we saw him land and thought it was a piece of equipment and then maybe that a stage hand had fallen, but it clearly wasn't: artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/08/20/man-is-killed-after...

 

my facebook post from this morning: I'm still reeling from the tragic suicide at the Swell Season concert last night. I keep thinking about the shocked & horrified look on Glen Hansard's face and about the two small children just down from us in the third row and the horrible sound as the body hit the stage and then when someone began CPR I knew...he was dead. Just before it happened I was thinking it was truly a memorable night and now it truly will be for a very different reason.
