SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Knitting Factory was shut down by Spokane Police on February 18 after two people were injured in a shooting outside the venue. This weekend the club is getting ready for two nights of shows.

The venue reopened a week after the shooting but not without a few changes and working out a partnership with the police department.

The Knitting Factory has been working with Hollywood Undead's tour manager. The band will be playing this weekend and the club is making sure safety isn't compromised. The venue explained their needs and let the manager know what the band could and could not do.

Police are getting ready for the weekend performances also. They say they will be watching the area and have added visibility of their patrols.

Owner of the Brooklyn Deli near The Knitting Factory, Jody Harville, says she's notice extra police patrols in the area ever since the shooting and it's good for business.

"It's sending a message to you. It's making you feel safer," said Harvile.
