fun colbert report

fun. has pretty much taken over Los Angeles this week, with three sold-out shows at the Wiltern this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so as arguably one of the biggest bands around right now, it’s only fitting that they’d also make an appearance at the biggest festival around. I’m talking, of course, about StePhest Colbchella ’012: Rocktaugustfest.

Late-night host and self-described “big player in the music biz,” Stephen Colbert held the second installment of his annual concert extravaganza on board NYC’s USS Intrepid this past week with such talent as Santigold, Grizzly Bear, Grandmaster Flash, and The Flaming Lips in addition to fun. The trio participated in an awkward/funny/awkwardly funny interview in one of the cabins prior to their performance, and it’s possibly the first interview ever during which the host asks his questions from below the guests.

Check out the interview and fun.’s performances of “Some Nights” and “We Are Young” below, and if you don’t have tickets to see fun. this weekend, get ye to Stubhub!
