It takes a certain panache to reel off zingers while you’re lying down next to Wayne Coyne in a space capsule, but that’s why Stephen Colbert is on TV and the rest of us aren’t. All week, Colbert has been highlighting the guests at his StePhest Colbchella festival, which went down last weekend on the U.S. Intrepid. We’ve already seen Grizzly Bear and Santigold, but Colbert, like many a festival organizer, went with the Flaming Lips as his headliners. And on last night’s episode, we got to see Colbert lay down with Coyne and enter one of the Lips’ crowdsurf bubbles. The show also had the band playing “Ashes In The Air” (without Bon Iver), and, during the sign-off, the Colbert Report theme song. And as online bonuses, they also did “Do You Realize??” (without confetti cannons) and “Drug Chart.” Watch all the videos below.
The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends is out now on Warner Bros.
