Flaming Lips, Santigold to Play Stephen Colbert’s StePhest Colbchella in New York


You know how Coachella is doing that cruise thing? Well, Stephen Colbert can top that. He announced last night that he’s throwing his own all-star boat concert next Friday, August 10th, at New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum (aka the U.S.S. Intrepid). Officially titled StePhest Colbchella ‘012 — RocktAugustFest, the festival will feature The Flaming Lips, Santigold, Grizzly Bear, and fun., about whom Colbert cracked, “I hear their songs are a ton of band.” The legendary Grandmaster Flash will DJ, and seeing as he lives on Colbert’s bookshelf these days, we wouldn’t rule out a surprise appearance from Michael Stipe. Best of all, Colbchella is free. Tickets will be available today, and you can enter your email address at Colbert Nation for updates.
