You know how some concert venues just make you feel old, in contrast to the grunge-loving youth? Lincoln Hall is a place where you’ll never feel that way. This two-level Lincoln Park hall brings in some mid-level names in rock, hip hop, folk, alternative, and alt country, and has first-come, first-served seats upstairs—complete with cocktail service—and a large floor downstairs for the moshers (or just those who want to stand). Sister venue Schubas (see below) offers a similar vibe.
