Review: Extra Second at the Blue Chair

By Liam Hainey


Extra Second at the Blue Chair established itself remarkably quickly as one of the must see nights in the ever expanding Glasgow Spoken word scene.

By inviting both poetic veterans and newcomers to participate in a monthly experimental night, Extra Second has ensured that its strength is its diversity.

Highlights from the April 20th edition, themed around childhood, included Liam McCormack’s deranged yet hilarious storytelling and Stephen Watt’s emotional words on fraternity and growing old.

The small, intimate, audience were enraptured throughout and clearly willing to go through the emotional peaks and troughs that the diversity of the material demanded.

Extra Second is a monthly experimental poetry and spoken word night, taking place at The Blue Chair, 85 High Street, Glasgow.
