Stephen Colbert to Host Concert on Aircraft Carrier



Comedian and TV host Stephen Colbert is putting together a music festival on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier, featuring performances from Grizzly Bear, The Flaming Lips, Santigold, Fun and Grandmaster Flash. It's name: StePhest Colbchella '012: Rocktaugustfest!, because that's easy to remember.

There is a link for tickets to the Friday, Aug. 10, festival on Colbert's website,, but it seems like the plan is to give most of them away via social media contests.

Here's a recent posting on the show's Facebook page:
