Don’t call Minnesota’s own Owl City a one-hit wonder. "Good Time," a collaboration between City’s Adam Young and Carly Rae Jepsen, best known for "Call Me Maybe," has sold over a 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 big success with "Fireflies."

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