Mitchell Frank, owner of Spaceland Productions, which books and manages the venue, said in a statement: We've had some incredible musical moments here; people met, fell in love, started life-long friendships, but it's just time for a change."

In addition to Spaceland Productions, Frank has been involved in festival production, including Arthurfest and the Sunset Junction Street Fair as well as a stint as the president at Ideal Records. He is also a co-owner of the popular L.A. nightclub Echo and the eatery Malo.

The building's owner Jeff Wolfram told Los Angeles music blog Buzz Bands that he was looking to bring the booking in-house. The club is expected to re-open under new management with a new name, The Satellite. Another music blog, the LAist reported that the club will honor all of Spaceland's current bookings, including the January residency by the Melvins. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
