The Dropa Stone, an alt-rock quartet from Orlando, Fla., has that sort of sound Asheville might make should our buildings have mouths: hypnotic and soulful, innovative, yet catchy. Most notable for putting together a memorable, live performance are its individual, energetic members: Jon Meyers on vocals and guitar, Justin Henry on lead guitar, Will Richey on bass guitar, and Joe Lederman on drums. The band’s distinct voice, a fusion of refreshingly sporadic melodies, crosses several genre-boundaries including rock, funk, and R&B. According to their website, members of the Dropa Stone draw inspiration from such bands as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Sound Garden, and Incubus. The band’s first, self-titled album, The Dropa Stone E.P., was released July 24, 2008 to positive reviews.

While on tour promoting their new album, Starry Messenger, the Dropa Stone is scheduled to “dropa” by The One Stop on Saturday, Feb. 18, opening for local duo StereoFidelics.

10 p.m. showtime, $5.
