Brooklyn guitarist/violinist Amy Klein was always the secret swagger behind Titus Andronicus, injecting a bit of rock-star bravado into all that righteous sweat-punk. She did some chamber-pop solo stuff in her pre-Titus days, and now, having left the boys behind a couple years ago, is taking things in a new direction entirely: seriously noisy, occasionally shoegazey, totally psyched out. Her new duo Hilly Eye — Klein on guitars and vocals and her old college pal, Catherine Tung, on drums and vocals — just released its raw, lovely debut Reasons to Live (Don Giovanni). The F.U. side chapel seems like a sedate little room for such a big, gutsy sound; let’s see if you can stay seated.
Sat., Feb. 9, 7:30 p.m., $8-$10, with Attia Taylor, First Unitarian Church Side Chapel, 2125 Chestnut St., 866-468-7619, r5productions.com.
