Several witnesses say that the man climbed up onto the roof, then sprinted and stumbled to the top before jumping off. He fell approximately three stories, through lighting rigging, then landed on a speaker on the stage less than three feet from Swell Season vocalist/songwriter Glen Hansard.
It's not clear if the man, who was described as in his mid- to late 20s, died on the scene or a short time later. The San Jose Mercury News says local officials confirmed the incident, but wouldn't disclose details.
