Don't call Minnesota's own Owl City a one-hit wonder. "Good Time," a collaboration between Owl City's Adam Young and Carly Rae Jepsen, best known for this year's smash "Call Me Maybe," has sold more than 1 million copies this summer. Expect that number to jump when the musicians appear next Tuesday on NBC's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," as well as TBS's "Conan" next Wednesday.

Young, who hails from Owatonna, previously had huge success with the single "Fireflies," which went to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100.

Those who can't wait that long to check out a local band on late-night television can tune in Wednesday to "Jimmy Kimmy Live," which will feature a performance from Poliça.
