"I've never felt that spirit here," he says, sweaty and smiling at the afterparty. The crowd knows the old stuff. They know the new stuff. They sing along to everything.

The Spree’s release party at Granada Theater featured Harper Simon and Telegraph Canyon.

At the start of the show, facing a blank sheet, they buzz cheerfully. DeLaughter takes his Sharpie and starts writing in big, active, scribbling text on the sheet. He goes back over it backward in spray paint, and finally it reads, "WE GO BACK A LONG TIME!"

I've seen them twice now (the opening of Kylde Warren Park and in Arlington's downtown (yes they have one)) and have enjoyed each of their performances.
