"CAN A Welsh person live the American dream? I guess so." Jem giggles after she says this. The fruition of her dream -- making a living at crafting appealing trip hop-dusted electro-pop -- seems "so unreal at times, you know?" But it is real. The Cardiff, Wales-born singer-songwriter, 28, has just released her debut, Finally Woken, a fine collection of category-defying songs that blend elements of folk, pop, electronica and shades of hip-hop. Reviews have been generally positive, and fair comparisons to Dido and Beth Orten abound.

"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.''That may be Atticus Finch's most memorable piece of fatherly advice in Harper Lee's 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, ''To Kill a Mockingbird.'' But the book is full of the wisdom with which this lonely widower raised his two children and tried to teach them how to act as moral beings in an immoral world.His daughter Jean Louise, or ''Scout,'' as he and everyone else called her, tells us many of the things her father said to her and her brother Jem when they were growing up in the 1930s in the little town of Maycomb, Alabama.

This weekend, fans of Fugazi no doubt will be beating a path to the Charles Theatre, which is showing "Instrument," Jem Cohen's film about the legendary Washington punk band.While "Instrument" has obvious appeal for Fugazi aficionados, this two-hour documentary should also prove inspiring to anyone who is fed up with the commodification and commercialization of artistic expression.Cohen, who went to high school with Fugazi front-man Ian MacKaye, uses Super-8, 16-millimeter and video footage, often not synched up with whatever song is playing, to create a visually poetic and narratively compelling portrait of a band that for more than a decade has pursued a career of rare artistic and political integrity.

Their ability to escape consequences would be fatally irritating if they weren't so ... beautiful. Such is the case with fair Helen, one of the characters in Ferdinand Mount's bright new novel, Fairness.

Being alone, whether in outer space or at a boarding school in London, doesn't sound like much fun. But add video games, special effects and dancing and singing, and the entire family might be interested in taking one of two theatrical trips Saturday. Families can escape to Jupiter's fifth moon when they see Imagination Stage's production of Callisto 5 in Bethesda. Or they can stick closer to Earth and attend Children's Playhouse of Maryland's production of A Little Princess at the Community College of Baltimore County, Essex.

It's also about his two children, Jem and Scout (Phillip Alford and Mary Badham)
