The rock 'n' roll road has ceased for Streets of Thieves, a metro metal band ending its four-year run with a show in Oklahoma City.
In an e-mail, singer Dirk Mathews wrote the breakup was neither "happy" nor "unhappy," and came as the band's four members moved on to separate commitments in the military, at a university and as members in other groups and musical projects.
"After long years of dive bars, great shows, too much band beer, and some of the greatest memories of our lives, we are laying it to rest," Mathews wrote.
Over Stars and Gutters, The Disposables, Balthazar and Red City Radio will join Streets of Thieves for its final show, 8 p.m. Friday at The Conservatory, 8911 N. Western. Tickets are $2. For more information, call 607-4805. "Joe Wertz
