This year during South by Southwest, Consequence of Sound teamed with Jukely and Tito’s Handmade Vodka to bring Off the Avenue to Austin. We invited nearly 30 bands to visit our special 5th Street Studios setup and film exclusive sessions.

This installment features an intimate performance Americana rock band Hollis Brown. The Queens, New York five-piece delivered a warm rendition of the closing track to their recent 3 Shots LP, “The Ballad of Mr. Rose”. Though there’s a bit of wistfulness in the lyrics, there’s also hopefulness wrapped in the comforting chords, making it a nice fit for the first day of July. Check out the clip below.
