It's free and on board the Intrepid in New York, with videos of music from starring bands--including Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear and Grandmaster Flash--to air on his show starting next week. See full report at The Guardian. Colbert calls it am urban protest against "half-naked patchouli-soaked white-guy-dreadlock festivals, like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Salmonella." Also: "This will be the greatest thing ever to happen on the Hudson river. Suck it, Sullenberger."
