The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.

With accesories and regimines being more exciting than some females these days, it's nice to know that some of us can still rap. Rhymesayers has its hands full with this one, but part of that is because she has boobs. Psalm One, the self-proclaimed "fuck a" fem-cee is gearing up for her second offering, the follow-up to 2006's critically acclaimed "The Death of Frequent Flyer". After telling academia to piss off, then inviting it into the bathroom again, touring, male-to-female-to-female contact, manicures and dirt baths, Psalm is doing the unthinkable: letting you in. With the skills that are hardly anything but stellar, new production, old friends and the world by the tight and curlies, it's on once again. And what more could you ask for? She's not your prom date; she's the one you hung out with at prom in the back of mom's volvo, got blasted and talked about all the people with their noses in the air and thumbs up their asses. And she plays drums. Go figure.
Bassel & The Supernaturals officially released "Dreamer" at The Empty Bottle in Chicago on February 28, 2013 as part of a humanitarian effort for Syria during an intense civil war that has drastically affected Bassel's family along with millions of others. Bassel Al-Madani is a Syrian-American souljazz artist born/raised in Northeast Ohio, currently residing in Chicago, IL. Despite facing intense challenges in recent years (including a massive apartment complex fire and car theft), he has been frequently recording and touring the nation since 2008.
"Dreamer" was engineered at Hinge Studios in Chicago, IL during the summer of 2012. The album was an independent effort by Bassel & The Supernaturals, and the funds generated from their presale campaign helped to support their recording experience, a 3-week US tour, and a charity donation to Syria.
Bassel released "Submerged" as a solo effort in 2010 at Used Kids Records in Columbus, Ohio. Shortly after the conclusion of a four-week tour supporting his first LP, he was invited to perform at the Pelotonia opening ceremony with The Counting Crows and Augustana.
Bassel's self-titled EP was released in 2008, featuring the production talents of Sinkane (Ahmed Gallab), who has actively performed in groups such as Yeasayer, Caribou, Of Montreal, and Born Ruffians.
