Some might be familiar with Jersey rock band, The Gaslight Anthem. Their lead singer, Brian Fallon, hails from the New Brunswick area.

Fallon recently set out on a side project, a band called The Horrible Crowes. While Gaslight is a bit on the "punkier" side of rock, The Horrible Crowes sound like if Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Nick Cave and a side of awesome were all thrown into a blender.

Recently, The Crowes set out on a limited city tour. One of their surprises was a cover not many expected. The smash hit by Katy Perry, "Teenage Dream."
