Watch The Flaming Lips' <i>Colbert</i> Performance

After bringing Grizzly Bear and Santigold on board earlier this week, Stephen Colbert wrapped up his floating festival, StePhest Colbchella ‘012 RocktAugustfest, last night with a performance from the Flaming Lips.

Colbert interviewed Wayne Coyne while laying down in a space capsule aboard the boat, and the two mulled over topics such as Long John Silvers and Yoko Ono. Afterwards, the Flaming Lips performed “Ashes in the Air” off of Heady Fwends, “Do You Realize” and covered Gummy Skull’s “Drug Chart.”
