In 2001, I was in Spain for a semester abroad and didn't get out to too many shows, but I did manage to pick up Kemopetrol's first album in Madrid Rock and they became one of my favorite bands, which could have lead to my obsession with Massive Attack. I was always a huge Bjork fan and was ever so excited about Vespertine. While in Madrid, I got to see Less Than Jake and Dido, both great concerts. The Crystal Method at the 9:30 Club was fun, too. Local H at Black Cat was legendary. However, the real winner this year was Rammstein at Nation. That show was intense!
