Built in 1922, The Lincoln Theatre has a prominent place in the history of American popular music. From hosting jazz artists like Duke Ellington to its rebirth in the 1990s as a performing arts center hosting a number of diverse events, this venue has long been part of the arts and music scene in DC.
This summer, that proud tradition continues as The Lincoln presents a slate of concerts, performances, and special events that rival just about any venue in town. Some noteworthy events include the “Woman of the Year Pageant” celebrating women 55 years and older on June 17, performances from supergroup Case/Land/Veirs on June 27, and the return of grunge-electronic heroes, Garbage, on August 3. You’ll find the venue right across the way from the U Street Metro and close to an array of dining and drinking options, which makes it a snap to plan a night out with friends.
