In Alexandria, Virginia, there is a historic building called Gadsby's Tavern Museum. True, cities don't typically dedicate museums to bars -- but George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Madison drank, danced and did who knows what all else on these particular premises. The idea for the Declaration of Independence could have conceivably sprang forth from within one of those very toilet stalls. Outhouses. Whatever. But also -- and very factually -- springing forth from Alexandria are the modern-day minutemen otherwise known as Over It. The Lobster Records foursome first joined forces in 1998, but with 2002's Timing Is Everything, and this year's Silverstrand, the 'Its have gained acclaim for delivering aggressive pop-punk skirmishes about dreams, destiny and dames that fire off choruses with more kick than a rusty old musket. Drink, dance and do who knows what all else as Over It get revolutionary alongside tourmates Hidden in Plain View. ID is required; white powdered wigs are optional.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $12; call 314-621-9333 for more information.
