Street To Nowhere is a one man band featuring Dave Smallen, but sometimes there is a
full band playing with him (think Dashboard Confessional).  Website:
http://www.streettonowhere.com/ This site includes a few recorded demos, and you can
download Dave's show that he performed on Live 105.  Dave was on live 105 after winning
a battle of the bands to play on Wapred Tour in San Fransisco.

This version of Dead Cliche is tabbed from the Live 105 version, but the studio demo is
nearly identical. This is nearly 100% correct.  At the bottom is the same song,
but in standard tuning for those who do not want to tune down their guitar.

Tuning: 1/2 step down!
