1. Super Bowl XLV: Packers v. Steelers
Sure, the hated Steelers are playing in the big game instead of the Ravens, but you know you're going to watch anyway. Go Packers? 6:30 p.m. Sunday, WBFF/Fox. MATT VENSEL, B
2. David Lowery, The Palace Guards
One of the most interesting yet underappreciated frontmen in rock, David Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven), releases his long-awaited debut solo album, The Palace Guards, on Tuesday. BRIAN KRISTA, B
3. Robyn at Rams Head Live
Pretty much every song on the Swedish dance-pop singer's three Body Talk releases is better than Britney's "Hold It Against Me," which debuted at No. 1 while Robyn toils away in semi-obscurity here. I hold that against you. Make up for it by being in the audience Tuesday. $25. 7 p.m. doors. ramsheadlive.com ADAM SAPIRO, B
Daryl Hall is cooler than you, and he wants to prove it by inviting bands over to his house, wowing them with his non-rehearsed musical ability and his gifts in serving a five-star meal. No need to impress me, Daryl. You already won me over with “Rich Girl.”

5. 'The Roommate'
This thriller will likely suck, but allow me to justify it this way: Minka Kelly. Leighton Meester. Together! Opens Friday.
WESLEY CASE, B
6. 'The Tillman Story' on DVD
A documentary that was robbed of an Oscar nomination Tuesday, this film redraws the tale of a thoughtful, searching Arizona Cardinals safety who joined the Army Rangers; the machinery that spread a tale of heroism when he actually died of friendly fire; and the family that has tried to learn the truth. Out Tuesday.

9. 'Barney's Version'
No, it’s not going to be a blockbuster. But I’m interested in checking out Paul Giamatti’s Golden Globe-winning performance for best actor. Opens Friday.
LUKE BROADWATER, B ••••UPDATE: The studio announced Monday that "Barney's Version" will no longer be opening in Baltimore this Friday. A new release date will be announced soon.
