This SXSW, Rolling Stone organized the first annual SXSW Musicians Knife Throw Down: a competition between three bands to determine which of them had the best knife-throwing skills.

Before the So So Glos arrive at the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame (on the outskirts of Austin, Texas), members of Future Islands and Nothing gather in the parking lot and discuss whether they needed to move their vans further away from the action.

Kyle Kimball serves as the bullseye in some target practice. Overheard from another member of Nothing: "Unfortunately, Kyle is no longer with us."
