Anvil Chorus/LaPush 

9 p.m. Saturday, August 26. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room (6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City).

Forget her voice; onstage, Anvil Chorus vocalist Anna Cole is a force. Sitting at a keyboard, she manages to writhe, shake and pound out the music — all while looking totally hot. But about that voice...the crescendos and emotive quality of her band's music require that she whisper, moan, yowl and belt without abandon. The Kansas City quartet originally came together at a band scramble in 2004 and is in the process of painstakingly recording its debut full-length; no doubt the dark and brooding release will be a pants-dropper, especially since Byron Huhmann and Brad Wicklander's take on the bass and drums — which is by turns urgently percussive and sparse and atmospheric — sets the mood for Cole's sultry voice and chilling piano.
