          I went to have a look and got distracted by a Keith Richards documentary… it happens… anyway, when I searched by title Netflix found it as a search option but it didn’t actually find the film. At least, by my unprofessional attempt, it isn’t there.

      Musically, it fit the mix just fine, to my ears! I found most info online to confirm that the Police did, indeed, play their first USA gigs at CBGB in 1978. I found one reference, though, to their first US gigs to be at The Rat in Boston. We need a Police historian to solve this burning conundrum!
