Bon Iver Kicks Off Colbchella ’011 On The Colbert Report

You all watching @ColbertReport!? We’re playing “Calgary” after these commercials…

That’s what Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon tweeted right before he kicked off the inaugural performance of Stephen Colbert’s StePhest Colbchella ’011, the Dr. Pepper-sponsored week long series designed to “rock you like a thirst-a-cane.”

“My guest Bon Iver has a new album out called Bon Iver,” said the talk show host in his intro, “or maybe I have that backwards.”

Bon Iver performed a rousing version of the Peter Gabriel-esque “Calgary,” employing both a puking saxophone and a triangle solo.
