There's a new feature to Tonight in Rock -- TV. Late-night television always offers great musical guests, so you'll start seeing those listed as well below. At this point, only new shows will air, no repeats. And speaking of TV, will native Chikezie Eze and transplant Brooke White make it to the next round on American Idol tonight? We think so. Go Los Angeles people! However, TIVO that and go out tonight, check out a show and if you're a Herbie Hancock fan, there might be some free tickets left for March 20.
