Game of Thrones’ Hodor Bringing ‘Rave of Thrones’ To Levels

Kristian Nairn, the actor who has become famous by saying just one word repeatedly in HBO’s Game of Thrones, will be DJing at Levels Nightclub in April on Wednesday, April 15, at 9 p.m.

Nairn had a semi-professional career in electronic music before his acting career earned him a role on one of television’s most popular shows. His acting success has allowed Nairn to get back into the world of house music, hitting the road with a “Rave of Thrones” tour. He goes by the stage name HODOR for the Thrones-themed tour.

Levels says that there will be “Game of Thrones costume contests and more” at the event, so whether you’re a fan of electronic music or just the average fan of the show, be sure to check out one of the more unique music experiences to hit State College.

Nairn originally hails for Northern Ireland, although you wouldn’t know that from watching Thrones. His character, Hodor, is a dimwitted oaf of a man who can say just one thing: his own name. Nairn brings out a range of emotions through that one word, though fans of Hodor will have to make it to Levels if they want to see him any time soon as the storyline involving the character is taking a season off.

Tickets are available for $20 and are on sale now.
