Watch Shipbuilding Co. at The Yacht Club

Nebraska’s Shipbuilding Co. stopped by The Yacht Club this weekend to play us some songs, and we have some lovely video to share. The Indie rock group played the final set of the night after local group Shame Train finished up a set of their own, and although Iowa City was experiencing flood-like conditions at the time, a host of music fans were in attendance to welcome our friends from the West.

Check out the video below to see what this group does best. As always, you can find hundreds of additional live music performances in our Youtube Channel. If we’re missing video of your favorite local music group, let us know. It’s our personal mission to capture all facets of Iowa City’s live music scene and we could certainly use your input, dear readers.
