Best epic transition: Transitions Closes, Epic Problem opens

Hollow Earth at Epic Problem in January

Transitions Art Gallery at Skatepark of Tampa, one of the area’s most infamous DIY all-ages venues, hosted its final show on Dec. 29, 2012, and on January 1, 2013, transitioned seamlessly from eight-years-long proprietor Matt Welch into the fresh young hands of local musician (Criminal Culture, Ink & Sweat) and DIY champion Matt Ostraco. A coat of purple paint later, the space re-opened as Epic Problem and continues to provide live sounds on a regular basis. 4215 E. Columbus Drive Tampa, facebook.com/epicproblemtampa.
