New owner, new name for Transitions Art Gallery

Transitions Art Gallery, the tiny venue behind Skatepark of Tampa that's housed countless local and punk shows, will now make its own transition into new ownership and a new name. In a Facebook post last week, owner Matt Welch announced that after eight years of operation, he will step down, and starting Jan. 1, the venue will be known as Epic Problem. Fans of Transitions shouldn't fret too much though, as the new owner is Matt Ostraco, guitarist/vocalist of local punk band Criminal Culture. Among some of the more memorable shows Transitions put on include a drop-in by Ian McKaye's band The Evens, a now-unimaginable bill of Matt and Kim, Monotonix and comedian Reggie Watts. Its last show before the transition is Dec. 29. — Jimmy Geurts
