Fauxbalt | Nickname | When the Cobalt was renovated in 2009 and  promoter Wendy13 was subsequently evicted, local punks lamented the loss of their beloved venue as a yuppie takeover and gave it the Fauxbalt moniker. (Most people are over it now that Wendy13 has found a home at Funky Winker Beans, aka Punky Thrasherbalts.)
