I live in Buffalo, NY
Kmet Police, B52's, & Missing Persons were all great. I lked the Police as soon as I heard "Roxanne" for the First time(I think it was around '79). I rushed out & bought the 45 & although I loved Roxanne, I really enjoyed the flipside which was "Dead End Job". That sounds pretty wild,Pat Benatar with a stand-up drummer but that was one of the few times I got tickets up in the nosebleed section.It was definitely in '81 when I seen her

Overall, the 80's was probably my favorite decade for music. Don't have the time (or energy) to go into my likes and loves of music from the 80's right now, but will in the near future.
