"Love Club Show Review Connies"

As The Love Club (above) finished up tuning and started cracking open new beers on stage before their set, the audience inched closer, leaving the bar and pool table behind. Frontman David (Mitch) Esparza, cleared his throat into the mic, checked his strings and started off the band right into a jam. The five-person group kept up a grunge and punk set for about 45 minutes before turning the barely lit stage over to the second act. - JUMP Philly

"Song Feature "Blow""

One of several musical pursuits of David Mitchell Esparza – aka (((taco))) – The Love Club deals in steamy, noisy electric blues, raw and right to the point. Today’s Philly Local Phile spotlights “Blow,” an unapologetic cautionary tale from their 2011 EP, Of Love and Other Demons. - The Key Blog WXPN

"Philadelphia Deli Blog Show Anouncement"

The Love Club Set to Explode at The Fire Oct. 16

It first appears a bit grimy and ragged, unfiltered garage-rock scenario with the makings of an intense inferno that generates its initial signs of life down deep with guttural vocals and stick to your bones retro-fitted guitar licks that have a straight ahead yet fuzzed edge, comforting in its lowlight minimalist aggressive nature. The Love Club a combustible musical machine spearheaded by David Mitchell Esparza, a.k.a. (((taco))), appropriately hits The Fire tonight. It’s a controlled slow-building burner, which continually gathers strength until it reaches an apex exploding with fervor. They’ll be joined by the grungy duo of Joe Musciano and Sean Sacks, a.k.a. Great Red Spots, weaving fuzzed out high-octane guitar lines with barricade bashing drums. The bill also includes indie-rocking quartet Dead Tenors. Mythical Minneapolis noise rock trio Is/Is and atmospheric Georgia rockers New Madrid round out the evening. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave, 8pm., $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita - Philadelphia Deli Blog

Love Club started in 2007 opening for Awesome Color (Ecstatic Peace), The Entrance Band (Ecstatic Peace) & Scott Biram (Bloodshot).  It started as Mitch Esparza, Eric Preisendanz, and Kyle Press playing together here and there after Mitch had recorded a demo with some free recording time at this fancy studio in the suburbs...    "Change as the only constant" has been the only cohesive mantra for the group as the line up has changed constantly in the passed 7 years since their inception.  At some time they had Vince Alvare playing drums, who they stole from Far-out Fangtooth, as well as  Kian Sourori of Ted Nguyent on bass.   Today's line up boasts: Mitch on guitar and vocals, Kyle Press on sax and mouth noises, Alex Wilson (Human Shapes/Almanac Audio) on guitar, Emily Cahill (Weekender) on Bass, with Terry Foley and Sean Sacks holding down a duel drummer rhythm section.   They play loud.  Really loud.
