LOVE STORY Davy & Amelia (Jacob, 22, and Jenna Walker, 21, artistically named after Davy Crockett and Amelia Earhart) have been on a crazy adventure since their mid-teens, and this year they finally have two babies to show for it: their very fine folk-rock Norah June EP (which they presented at Jack’s Bar on November 1) and the actual Norah June, a baby girl born October 9. They’re a welcome new addition to the SA scene (Jacob comes from a military family) and deserve some local love. You can find the Norah June EP everywhere, including

LUNA LIVE TURNS 10 It’s been 10 years already? Luna Live’s a decade old and it’s celebrating with one of its (and my) favorite bands, Latin soul/R&B badasses Sexto Sol ($10, 9:30pm Sat, Nov 16, 6740 San Pedro). That’s right: Sexto Sol is still going and there’s plans for a new release in 2014. They’ll soon post a crowd-source funding video. “This could be our most important album, in which we cement our legacy, so we want to do this the right way,” bassist Greg Goodman told SA Sound. Can’t wait.

What a great year San Antonio’s Hydra Melody has had. After winning Milwaukee’s Land the Big Gig Competition in June (which gave them a $20,000 prize and the chance to open for a big band), they’ll now be opening for Third Eye Blind for nine dates in November and December. The win is especially sweet given the fact that they experienced technical problems at the finals, but once they said, “Fuck it,” they kicked ass and took the gold. The bad part: none of those nine dates are in SA, but let us hope will see them in 2014, and with a brand new album.
