Iowa City’s own Yacht Club (13 S. Linn St.) turns thirteen this year and will celebrate with a ten-hour, six band party on Jan. 23.

In a press release, the club’s owner and talent buyer, Scott Kading, wrote, “This is something that we look forward to all year, every year. We’ve had so much fun here over the years that we love to give back a little on our birthday.”

The event, which will run from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., will feature Aaron Kamm and the One Drops, Candymakers, Circle of Heat, PHO, Bullfights on Acid and Akasha. The show is all ages until 10 p.m. and 19 and up until close. Tickets will be $10.

Yacht Club opened in January 2003 and has offered live music and entertainment six nights a week in an incongruous 1917 building since then.
