It's awesome when everything goes right at a show: great lineup, great venue, and great concept. But, as the crowd at Friday night's sold-out Carnaval Eléctrico festival proved, sometimes it can be even greater when everything goes wrong. It rained cats and dogs, making the outdoor sets soggy, and creating a massive line -- a "one in/one out" situation -- to get back into the dry venue. Still, the pouring rain didn't stop the audience from dancing and cheering as Cold War Kids performed their trademark song, "Hang Me Out to Dry," the bass line booming as singer Nathan Willett sang "too, too, too many times" in his singular rasp.
