By now, you know the scoop regarding New Times' Carnaval Eléctrico at Crescent Ballroom: It rained -- a lot -- but performances by pop princes Diners, the soulful Stan Devereaux and the Funky Suns, hard rockers Mergence, garage kingpin Hanni El Khatib, indie combo Cold War Kids, and more, made the wet worth it.

Our own Melissa Fossum and Abraham Karam were on hand, documenting the sights and sounds. Check out Karam's photo slideshow, and scope Fossum's video compilation and more photos after the break.
