Description

The Lincoln Theatre is a modest, mid-sized concert venue in downtown Raleigh known for its lineup of live music ranging from national touring bands, local talent, and cover bands. The venue exudes an old school-vibe, and puts a premium on acoustics, sound and stage equipment, and beer over luxuries. Visitors can watch music standing up in front of the stage, or from balcony seating.

Tips

Where to Sit:
Due to the tiered, open layout of the room, there's really no bad spot during a show at the Lincoln; with a capacity of 550, the party is capable of growing to mythic proportions. The acoustics are pretty solid, and the vibe is definitely laid-back.

Parking:
The small, paved parking lot on the corner of Wilmington and Cabarrus is an "honor pay" parking lot: Pay for a parking pass and put it on your dash--or your car will be towed.
