Somerville’s Kirsten Opstad, who’s best known locally as an actor/writer/comedian with Improv Asylum, has just released a new CD, “Fear of Swimming,’’ and she played a few tunes from it the other night at Club Passim. (That was preceded by a get-together at nearby Charlie’s Kitchen.) In March, we’re told, Opstad is planning to take a month off from the Asylum to tour in support of the CD.
