The indie-rock trifecta of Ben Folds Five, The Shins, and Matt & Kim hit late night last night. The reunited Folds Five swung by The Colbert Report, where they got the “Colbert bump” thanks to a performance of “Do It Anyway”. They also sat down with Colbert to discuss the origin of the band’s name (spoiler: it was a joke) and why Nick Hornby is the best at titling albums.
The Shins, making their 388th late night appearance behind Port of Morrow, performed “No Way Down” and “The Rifle’s Spiral” on Conan. And Matt & Kim ran through “Let’s Go” from their latest album Lightning. If you missed any of it, check out video replays below.
