Artist: Sara Hickman. History: Born in Jacksonville, N.C., and raised in Houston, Hickman, 26, took something of a humorous, performance-art approach to music while studying fine arts in college at Denton, Tex. After graduation in 1987, she moved to Dallas and became a regular in the local clubs with shows described by the Dallas Times-Herald as "a cross between a stand-up comedy routine and group therapy, with great music thrown in as a bonus."

Right in the middle of Laurel and Hardy the phone rang. "Sara Hickman. Sara Hickman," the voice on the phone said. "She ain't here," I said. "I know that," the voice said. "This is Joel from Elektra. Sara Hickman, she's beautiful. You'll love her. How 'bout an interview? She's beautiful. She's opening for Eric Johnson in Santa Barbara on April 9." "Swell. I'll make reservations for dinner," I said. "Wrong. She's in Dallas," he said. "A phoner?" I said.

Range, nimbleness afoot and a powerful throwing arm are the prerequisites for playing shortstop in the big leagues. Sara Hickman's trade has nothing to do with stopping grounders up the middle or turning the double play, but the Texas-based pop singer was not being presumptuous in calling her new album "Shortstop."

Talk about a split personality. On record, Sara Hickman sounds a little too preternaturally mellow and mature for her own good at times, with all the earnestness you'd expect from a politically correct but balladically commercial folk-pop singer older than her 27 years. In her At My Place show on Sunday, though, Hickman evidenced an entirely different side between songs, her smooth, sweet singing voice giving way in casual chat to a slightly dotty Valley-girl-from-Texas speaking style.

The rules say that new contenders in the pop marketplace are supposed to forge a consistent, identifying sound for themselves. Sara Hickman knows that. She just chooses not to pay any attention to it. "It's how I am," the 28-year-old singer from Dallas, who plays tonight at the Coach House, said in a recent phone interview from a tour stop in Boulder, Colo.

It got a little scary at one point during Ohio singer-songwriter David Wilcox's headlining set of the "Kerrville on the Road" show Saturday at the Veterans Wadsworth Theater, a concert promoting the annual Kerrville, Tex., folk festival. Those in the small audience who probably abhor and decry the bullet-ridden urban revenge fantasies of N.W.A. and "True Lies" laughed and cheered heartily as the boyish Wilcox performed "Blow 'Em Away," a commuter revenge fantasy.

Peter Pan Universal Home Studios DVD: $19.95-$26.98 VHS: $15.95-$24.98 For the family This richly visual 2003 feature is loaded with special effects, including some impressive state-of-the-art flying scenes. And except for Wendy, who is a feisty, budding writer here, it is a fairly faithful rendering of J.M. Barrie's evergreen celebration of childhood, albeit one that can wear a mite long for adults.
