Cobalt Set for Temporary Closure

The Cobalt, a fixture of Vancouver’s punk scene for many years and tarted up (for better or worse, depending who you ask) in 2010, has announced a temporary closure.

While there is a definite emphasis on temporary, this is still a blow to Vancouver’s music scene which has already seen other venues such as the Media Club, the Backstage Lounge and the Railway Club close or shift focus in recent times.

The venue addressed the closure in a Facebook post, which you can see in full below:
