20 August 2010 No Comment

`Swell Season at Mountain Winery was amazing until someone decided it was time to end their life and made an entire audience unwilling witnesses,” wrote one audience member.

The man identified as Michael Edward Pickels of San Jose, committed suicide during the Irish Folk duo The Swell Season’s performance at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, California. 1900 stared in horror “I saw him [Pickels] standing there on the edge of the roof, I thought it was a part of the act, and then he took off running and jumped, did a couple of flips and landed on the stage,” audience member Kyle Rivers told the paper. “It was pretty traumatic.'”.

Mercury News has reported that Pickels was facing charges of assault with a firearm, domestic violence and false imprisonment. He was out on $150,000 bail at the time of his death and was scheduled to be in court on Oct. 5.
