Join us for a drink and dance as part of this new summer guest DJ series at the Tate Modern, Terrace Bar.
Many musicians like to speak of versatility, but Nabihah Iqbal has better grounds than most. She boasts an MPhil (focused on African history) from Cambridge, experience working in human rights law and a black belt in Karate. Formerly known as Throwing Shade, she’s ditched that moniker to embrace the name she was born with. Her debut album for Ninja Tune, ‘Weighing of the Heart’ is a big statement in two ways: first, because she’s taken her real name to stand proudly as a female British Asian artists making music and, secondly, because she’s moved her music in a bolder, more expansive direction.
This week marks the beginning of a new night at our beloved Social, PRISON TAN, and first up in this series is the ‘Bristol Germ’, bringing you some incredible live music from Bristol.
THE BRISTOL GERM
The Bristol Germ is a new illustrated music magazine, designed to document a dramatic, inspiring episode in underground and avant-garde music taking place in Bristol. Pairing in-depth interviews with mesmerising original artwork, this occasional publication explores the eclectic community of musicians, promoters and record labels driving this remarkable movement in DIY music culture. It is designed to do what the mainstream music press has not, and will not: bring this music to the lives of people who deserve to hear it.
