The Germantown punk rock kids of Dairyland Youth have grown up in the 22 years since they first sang of young romance and other youthful adventures. Thankfully for longtime fans, they haven't grown up all that much—and they continue the fun times on their reunion album, Re:Volting. Their hooks may be a little subtler and their musical palette may have expanded to include touches of organ and sax, but any band willing to intermingle their musings on love with the benefits of monkey-repellent pants have their funny-punk bona fides in order. With band members now spread throughout the country (Denver, Milwaukee, Minneapolis), it's anyone's guess as to how often they'll play out.
