Dirty, clangy Philly blues act The Love Club didn't waste a lot of time dreaming up a title for its first full-length album, which gets its official release Friday: They went with The Love Club Full Length. Actually, the "they" is really singer-guitarist Mitch Esparza — who also plays under the name (((taco))) sometimes — and a rotating cast of characters, and the simple approach works just fine for their messy, stripped-down Delta-blues sound. Expect something raw, loud and unique at the release show on Friday.
Fri., May 25, 7:30 p.m., $6 ($12 includes album), with Slutever and Ted Nguyent, Elena's Soul, 4912 Baltimore Ave., 215-724-3043, elenassoul.com.
