Peter Dinklage's days as the frontman of a punk band may be behind him, but it seems that the Game of Thrones star is still into catching some live music whenever he gets the chance.

The actor, aka Tyrion Lannister, was spotted by a few people at Vicar Street on Monday night, where American indie-rock band The National were playing the second of two nights.

Sure enough, photos on photo agency WENN indicated that he was staying at Dublin's Merrion Hotel and was spotted leaving with his wife and child in a regular ol' taxi.

With Series 8 of Game of Thrones reportedly not starting filming until October, perhaps Dinklage is just taking in a bit of the rest of Ireland before he heads north. In any case, that taxi driver will have a good story to tell down the pub.
