Game of Thrones may be ending a lot sooner than expected, but diehard fans still have plenty to celebrate. In addition to its upcoming seventh season, which [spoiler] promises to finally bring Khaleesi back to Westeros, the HBO show’s “immersive music and visual” concert experience has been making its way across the country the last few weeks, complete with special guests.

Previously, we saw Serj Tankian of System of a Down perform the pivotal Red Wedding track “The Rains of Castamere” during a surprise appearance in Los Angeles last week. Now, live footage of The National frontman Matt Berninger taking on the same song has surfaced. The indie rocker made his epic cameo at the Game of Thrones tour stop in Las Vegas this past Saturday.

Check out fan-caught clips below. In 2012, The National recorded a full-band cover of “The Rains of Castamere” for the soundtrack to Game of Thrones’ second season.
