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.

Board Of Governors is a power-rock trio formed in Chicago, IL. Their music is distinguished by energetic, riff-driven, modern hooks infused with a heavy vintage appeal. BOG continues to surprise fans with an array of teasing dynamics, defiant key changes, and passionate soundscapes.
Although the band was formed in Chicago, BOG’s individual members represent the musical stylings of an entire nation. Raised on the West Coast, Trevor Hougardy owes much of his guitar and vocal influence to the grunge-rock 90s of Seattle. Born on the other side of the country, John Marino gained popularity touring in the punk-rock scene of the East Coast. Bassist Frey Brown, a Chicago native, grew up playing in and around the Midwest with various jazz-rock bands. Together, the three merge a youthful excitement and a specific energy from their rock, punk, and jam-band backgrounds.
BOG formed in 2008. For two years they wrote, experimented with different lineups and developed their sound. In the spring of 2011, Frey Brown joined the band on bass. With a completely refurnished rhythm section, the band evolved into a heavier, more groove-oriented powerhouse with a massive stage presence.
