Location: Municipal Auditorium, Kansas City, MO
Support act(s): Flock of Seagulls
In the company of: Dave K., his sister and her friend
A last minute offer to see the Go-Gos was offered and I accepted. They were hot at the time supporting their Beauty and the Beat album. It was an energized show and lots of fun.
Flock of Seagulls opened and thrilled me a little more than the girls. Wild hair and all, these guys were great. Singing “I Ran (So Far Away)” and “Space Age Lovesong” from the self-titled debut, it was a new wave party.
