Hodor from 'Game of Thrones' is also a DJ — and he's coming to Detroit

Posted By on Sat, Jan 24, 2015 at 11:46 AM

This week, I'm going to mail off questions to actor, musician and DJ Kristian Nairn, who you may recognize from a show called Game of Thrones in anticipation of his upcoming appearance at the MGM Grand on February 28. His most recent mixes are posted right here, so you can see how serious he is about house music. If you have any suggestions for what to ask this not very diminutive, certainly talented gentleman, feel free to leave them in the comments and they'll be seriously considered.

People don't usually comment on anything I write unless it's about Electric Light Orchestra, but it can't hurt to ask. I like that the guy is calling his event Rave of Thrones, as that answers any questions one might have as to whether he's shamelessly cashing in on his TV popularity or not. I did not mean that to sound snarky, by the way. Why shouldn't he do that, especially when he's DJ'ing dance music to drunk people? Clearly the guy is all about a good time. I'm really looking forward to an email interview with him. What a weird position to be in, you know? Imagine being the real Hodor.
