Winter has ended and summer is here, which means that any type of depression or "winter blues" should be gone by now, and it probably is. On July 12th, it's all gonna come crashing back one shot. Yung Lean and the sad boys are coming to Montreal, an event that's guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes and butterflies to your churning stomach.

YUNG LEAN @ CABARET UNDERWORLD

Sweden's saddest teenager, Yung Lean (real name Jonatan Leandoer Håstad) is a 17-year-old hip hop artist and yes, that's his real middle name. Being the youngest internet-relevant rapper in the game right now, he came about last year by dropping music videos on his YouTube account that caught on early, thanks to his relatable no-care attitude and questionable elegance. His unique style inspired the craze of Tumblr-obsessed people posting 'badly' edited pictures of themselves with mirrored leaning bottles of lean, Arizona Ice Tea cans (which are coincidentally his favourite drink) and blunts, among other things.

Sad boys is a movement consisting of Yung Lean and producers Yung Gud and Yung Sherman, the masterminds behind the majority of his beats. Friends since they met in a park in Sweden, they started out as the "Hasch Boys" before quickly growing into a tight-nit group of emotional and inconsolable white kids. Their main pre-occupation is music but they also influenced a new wave of fashion trends, popularizing a few brands before starting their own clothing line called "Sad Boys Entertainment" with merch that can be found on their website.

On the 12th of July (in Montreal), we will all experience a day of URL tears IRL as Yung Lean and producers Yung Sherman and Yung Gud a.k.a the Sad Boys will be hitting up Cabaret Underworld in Montreal for a heartbreaking performance presented by our homies over at SJU and MOTO. Other acts include the RAW RECORDS crew (Thomas White and Dear Lola LIVE), as well as Booty Bakery's Compton Chic and of course, our newly fave producer on the watch CRi. A link to the Facebook event can be found right here, and you can cop your tickets right here too. Make sure to get your tickets soon because with almost 1,000 attending over a month before the event, they're going to run out fast. 

If you want to try your luck at winning a pair of tickets to be part of this whole phenomenon in Montreal, check out our Facebook Fan page, or this page again on July 2nd, as we will be giving away a pair of tickets and two Arizona Ice Teas for one lucky reader.
