Bar Extreme logoBar Xtreme is a new bar for me, and I like it. Narrowly slotted into the top end of Old Christchurch Road, with weird and wonderful levels going on due to the hill. It also helps that the drinks are reasonable, and they’re experimenting by offering complimentary chilli, which is a real lip zinger! Snow boarding video screens adorn the walls, my only drawback is the dark musician corner – the crapberry just can’t get a shot in the poor light. Totally Live have been running an acoustic night here for a few weeks now; this is the first time I’ve wandered over…

I’ve missed Steve Perry‘s (Disco’s Out (Murders In)) solo set (to be honest, I didn’t know who was on); he was throwing in a few of the DO(MI) numbers solo, and will be doing the same this Thursday in O’Neills.

I have arrived in time to hear Mischa performing an “out there” set – namely material he wouldn’t normally come out and play. He slips in a couple of familiar numbers for Kat the cellist in his new band, who’s come along hoping to hear some numbers before having to play them! Always enjoyable, simply as Mischa always puts on a decent show with his performance.
