With its corporate-targeted upgrades, it's hard to imagine someone like Skee-Lo (the "I Wish" one-hit wonder) or a hanging-from-the-ceilings-with-meat-hooks fetish fan feeling comfortable in the remodeled spot.

At least there's a cool name to go along with the upgrades (a full photo tour is on the venue's website).
