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.

For one night only: Transmission brings the post-punk energy of Joy Division to life. Front man Damon Locks evokes Ian Curtis as the band performs songs from Unknown Pleasures and Closer with some bonus favorites. Transmission was assembled by Paul Kelvington, a man who loves to pay tribute and adores doing it for a good cause. With his tributes to Minutemen and Fugazi, he has helped foster DIY spirit and musicianship in future generations through generous donations to Girls Rock! Chicago summer camp.
Former front man for In the Red recording artists The Horrors, Paul Cary is an old soul, creating haunting melodies for these modern times. Following a split 7" with Thee Oh Sees, his solo LP - Ghost of a Man - feels like a ride through the dark depths of a deep Iowa night in a '57 Chevy.
Richard Smith, aka DJ RikShaw, founding member of the experimental band Rome, has one of the finest collections of vintage Jamaican music in town -- ska, rocksteady, roots reggae, punk & new wave.
All proceeds benefit Girls Rock! Chicago, a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through rock music. Girls Rock! summer camps are open to girls 8-16 regardless of their ability to pay or play.
