Things didn’t end well as New York rapper A$AP Rocky took the already-soaked stage at the VICE Kills Texas showcase at SXSW on Saturday night (Mar. 17). Following an adversarial set by hardcore punk outfit Trash Talk, Rocky managed to rail off a few songs as the crowd threw cans of beer and water at the stage, a few connecting with people on stage. After unsuccessful attempts to talk the crowd down, one of Rocky’s crew jumped into the audience and punches were thrown. Security shut the party down shortly after, around three a.m. Watch the whole thing unfold below.

In hindsight, naming your party “VICE Kills Texas” probably isn’t the best way to attract a peace-loving audience.
