Street to Nowhere was an indie/alternative rock band formed in Oakland, CA in 2001. The original lineup consisted of Dave Smallen (vocals, guitar), Spenser Russell-Snyder (bass, backing vocals) and Stefan Litrownik (drums). During 2002 the band recorded The Oakland EP and a number of demos, but after high school, the original members of the band went their separate ways, leaving Dave Smallen without a band.
Dave continued to play solo acoustic shows and in November 2005, Street To Nowhere released their first full length album, Charmingly Awkward, at a sold out show at San Francisco's Bottom of the Hill. The album was a bit of a collaborative project with other members of Bay Area bands (including Desa, The Matches, and Push To Talk) who provided vocals for the drunken hollering and singing at the end of the song Tipsy. Anton Patzner (Audrye Sessions, Judgement Day, Bright Eyes) plays the violin in the songs Screamin', Boxcars Boxcars and You Can't Go to Sleep.
The vacant spots in the band were eventually filled by Bryce Freeman (bass), Will Hauser (lead guitar), and Joey Bustos (drums).
They released a 7" EP in July 2006 through Agent Records featuring the songs "Hallelujah" (a cover of Leonard Cohen's original) and "It's Not Me".
Street to Nowhere was signed to Capitol Records in June 2006. The band broke up in 2008 with Dave's announcement that he was going solo.
