Indie rock trivia buffs know Amy Klein from her time as a multi-instrumentalist in volatile Jersey punk act Titus Andronicus, which she left in 2011, as well as for fronting the psych-pop duo Hilly Eye. Klein is also an accomplished songwriter and poet, and her new solo record, Fire—out last month on Don Giovanni—melds DIY attitude with a softer spirit. Rough around the edges but tender at its core, Fire features 11 tracks of Klein’s rangy, reflective folk-rock. There are hints of Titus’ sprawling bombast, but mostly the album is a platform to showcase Klein’s creative and personal evolution. Surf-pop standouts Outer Sea and new local punk four-piece Awkward Thrust share Thursday’s bill.
