DJ Hodor to Pump Club Nights throughout Australia
Coming soon to clubs in Australia - a Game of Thrones-inspired series of musical raves hosted by Northern Irish actor Kristian Nairn. Nairn plays Hodor on the smash hit series and is excited to share his DJing experience with fans down under.
As Nairn likes to describe it, he'll be spinning "the deepest house [music] from all seven kingdoms," in a continual sequence of club nights throughout Australia.
Organisers of this Rave of Thrones proudly advertise: "For one night only, in every capital across this land, venues will be transformed into the finest halls of Westeros."
Attendees must come draped in the garb of the times, featuring fantasy-themed adornments.
Not a stranger to the Belfast house music scene, Nairn has DJ'd for 11 years at the Kremlin Club, giving him exposure to be discovered by acting agents.
In a 2012 interview with Red Dot Diva, he shared that acting and being a DJ "is a similar process for me, but with slightly different components.
"When DJing, I am definitely trying to keep my mind very much switched on, and for Hodor, it's really the opposite. But [I still want] to be present in the scene, and to react well to what is happening, because I believe Hodor is a great reactor. I don't think too much is planned in his head!"
Nairn announced that performances in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Darwin and Adelaide, all scheduled for August, will favour "chunky, deep, dark" house music, straying far from EDM trends.
With his growing fame and popularity, Nairn should consider signing up for Celebrity Speakers, which represents some of Australia's most prominent entertainers and personalities.
Game of Thrones itself has been no stranger to interesting music. Since its inception in 2011, it has hosted and collaborated with several artists including Coldplay, the National, Sigur Rós and Snow Patrol, with Hold Steady closing out credits with a drinking song.
With the show's fifth season coming up soon, Stevie Nicks and Lily Allen have both expressed a strong interest in writing musical material for the soundtrack.
The Rave Of Thrones tour kicks off at the Hi Fi in Sydney on August 28, moves to the Secret Warehouse, Brisbane on August 29, Villa, Perth on August 30, Prince Bandroom, Melbourne on September 4, Discovery, Darwin, September 5, Zhivago, Adelaide on September 7.
