A bomb threat prompted hundreds of people to evacuate the Fine Line Music Cafe on Sunday.
 
 
First Avenue cancelled Swedish rapper Yung Lean’s concert at the Fine Line after a Reddit post surfaced claiming the venue would be bombed before the concert. 
 
 
Roughly 350 people were evacuated, First Avenue general manager Nate Kranz said, and the concert was nearly sold out with over 600 tickets sold. 
 
 
Police searched the venue and found no traces of explosives or suspicious devices. Authorities also closed off nearby blocks for about 90 minutes and Metro Transit stopped service at a nearby station. 
 
 
Concert attendees will receive refunds, Kranz said.
