TV on the Radio came to one of the funniest TV shows running last night. On Comedy Central’s Broad City, after co-stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer battled in an epic drum-off, multi-instrument Kyp Malone — as a Main Drag music store employee — asks them to leave. Check out a screenshot of Malone, who also records as Rain Machine, below.

TVOTR have a full slate of tour dates in the coming months to support last year’s revitalized Seeds. Malone also appears on psych-folk seeker Santiparro‘s “The New Baktun,” which you can hear below, from February 24′s True Prayer album via Gnome Life. As for the Broad City creators’ musicianship, it came up when they interviewed Sleater-Kinney for NPR that Glazer is actually a drummer — and a good one, at that, according to Jacobson.

Watch the full Broad City episode, titled “The Matrix,” here. It also involves a Prospect Park dog wedding.
