Understudy Tap Takeovers

Zilla Nights at the Understudy

Zilla Nights, the brain and musical child of DJ Blondezilla takes over the Understudy once a month, bringing the sunshine of the tropics to the Southbank, no matter what your weather app is telling you. Spinning a set of pan-African vinyl treats from every corner of the continent, you can expect anything from classic West African funk and Afrobeat, to 1970s Kenyan-Congolese fusion, Somalian pop, Senegalese Sabar music and beats from beyond the shores. Each month she'll be inviting a new and unique guest DJ to join her, playing music from old or new school Africa, the diaspora across the Caribbean and Latin America, and the melting pot of our very own London.

Free entry

First Saturday of the month 7pm - 1am

Music & DJs: DJ Blondzilla and D'Vo playing an assortment of music from the African diaspora
