A primary principle of economics is that value comes from scarcity. The less of something there is, the more valuable it becomes.
A good place to see this in action is in the music of The Soft White Sixties, which has more than a full-set-worth of killer material, but only a five-song EP to listen to once the band is off stage.
Most of the band's best stuff is still only available live, which is why people keep going back to see The Soft White Sixties over and over again. It also doesn't hurt that the San Francisco group's glam take on soul makes for a killer dance party.
The last time the band was in town, Boise Weekly caught up with The Soft White Sixties to chat about what it's like to be a buzz band and when it's time to kiss your day job goodbye.
