Ray Volpe Shows His Vulnerable Side on New Heartbreak-Themed “All Emotion Allowed” EP

Bass maestro Ray Volpe displays a softer side on his new EP “All Emotion Allowed,” a two-track testament to the complex and often heart-wrenching facets of love. Brimming with emotional lyrics and atmospheric, futuristic melodies, “All Emotion Allowed” is a vastly different venture from Volpe’s EP “No Emotion Allowed” earlier this year. On the first track “Without You,” featuring dual vocals by Devin & Lydia, Volpe explores a complicated and bittersweet breakup story of boy-loves-girl and girl-cares-but-not-in-that-way. Afterwards, the tables are turned on “Worth a Try” with Aviella, and it’s the girl who returns to fight for love. “All Emotion Allowed” will appeal not to just bass fans, but to anyone who appreciates experimental, groovy vibes and has ever experienced any form of heartbreak. Press play on “All Emotion Allowed” anytime you need a good hit in the feels.

New Study: U.S. Consumers Fear Scams When Purchasing Concert Tickets

Purchasing concert tickets can be a costly, frustrating and dangerous process due to rampant fraud, hidden fees, scalping and sky-high secondary market resale prices. To examine this issue in depth, Aventus, an open-source blockchain ticketing platform, commissioned a consumer survey and found many aspects of the online ticket purchasing process are discouraging potential concert attendees from going to more events.

Many concert-goers fear they will be scammed when purchasing tickets. Aventus found that nearly two-thirds of respondents are worried about buying counterfeit tickets or getting scammed when they purchase tickets, and not without reason: 12% of respondents have purchased a concert ticket that turned out to be a scam. The study found that men were nearly 2.5 times more likely to be scammed than women. Of respondents who fell victim to a scam, 54% said it affected their perception of the artist negatively, despite the fact that artists rarely have any control over ticket prices and have zero control over concert attendees getting scammed.
