SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This weekend, the Yacht Club, 13 S. Linn St., will reopen for entertainment after being temporarily closed because of water damage from the 225 Iowa Ave. fire early in the morning on Sept. 24.

Scott Kading, the owner of the Yacht Club and Gabe's, 330 E. Washington St., said a construction crew and employees at the club are working "like mad" this week to get everything setup for shows at the venue after the quick recovery.

Most of the interior of the building collapsed on itself as a result of the water damage, Kading said.

"Well, the ceiling was on the floor," he said.

In addition to ceiling and floor repair, the kitchen, bathrooms, and walls were damaged.

Despite the serious damage, Kading jokingly affirmed that the brick wall foundation of the venue was one of the few parts that stayed intact.

On Friday, Macpodz and Jet Edison will play a show at the Yacht Club.

Macpodz will release its new CD at the show on Friday, and band members will showcase their self-proclaimed "disco bebop" sound.

Jet Edison, based in Boulder, Colo., will join Macpodz in the Yacht Club's repoening. The quartet will pay a set of funky-rock jams at the show.

On Saturday, the club will host the finale of its New Belgium Battle IV. A series of groups will compete in this music battle to crown the season's winner.
