Over the Weekend: Club F15teen Turns Jersey Shore, Owl City Postpones Show, Fiery Furnaces at Old Rock House and Yo La Tengo at the Pageant

Good morning, St. Louis! Here's a recap of our weekend coverage.

"The Situation" at Club F15teen
Despite the jaw-dropping douche-baggery that takes place on MTV's Jersey Shore -- but with ratings like the show's received, more of us have watched it than we'd admit -- the "reality" show is the network's biggest hit in years. It's become a bit of a phenomenon, as displayed at F15teen on Locust on Saturday night. Mike "The Situation" Sorrento was the guest of honor at the club. Nightlife photographer Egan O'Keefe brings back these photos.

The loop was teeming with disappointed teens on Saturday night, as Owl City -- the musical project of Adam Young -- postponed its show. Check out our blog post and photos from the Pageant here.
