'Treme' season 2, Cam'ron, Art Fight and more of our favorites this week in 10spot

1. 'Treme' Season 2 premiere
Even though the first season was pretty slow, the addition of Jon Seda (left) to the cast makes me willing to give the New Orleans saga one more shot. 10 p.m. Sunday, HBO. Kate McGonigle, b

2. Unida Cantina

Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers release their newest album on Tuesday, and this is my most-anticipated album release of the year. They're proof that independent rock can survive as they're the first independent band to have six consecutive albums debut in the top 10 on Billboard's Internet sales chart. Brian Krista, B

3. 'Meet the Etsy Artist (a trunk show)'
I'm not artsy or crafty, but I'm impressed by those who are. Instead, I'll just buy their fancy-pants DIY pieces. Select local Etsy artists show off their wares 2-5 p.m. Saturday at Alexandra Webb. 1028 S. Charles St. Marissa Gallo, B

4. Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour 
This seems like a great way to waste $48 to $88. Winning! Tuesday, DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D St. N.W., Washington. Luke Broadwater, B
5. Cam'ron Presents the U.N: Gunz N' Butta
Because Cam'ron, rap's nasty wordsmith, can still flip the most ridiculous slang into everyday terms ("Stop it, 5."). Because Vado is the most promising New York rap artist working (Google "Large on the Streets"). Because it's called Gunz N' Butta (see how Cam does it?). Out Tuesday. Wesley Case, b

6. Super Art Fight X
Come witness the epic, live doodle battle (right) between two artists who fight to the death while furiously drawing on a blank wall of canvas depicting the random topics that are called out at intervals. Could this be more awesome? 9 p.m. doors Friday. Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. $12. Jasmine Wiggins, B

7. 'The King's Speech' on DVD/Blu-ray
It got too much Oscar love, but I still enjoyed this rousing tale of the unlikely, stuttering royal who rises to the occasion on the brink of World War II. Except for a surprisingly hammy Timothy Spall as Winston Churchill. Try to ignore that. Out Tuesday. Anne Tallent, b

8. 'Water for Elephants'
You read it in book club! (At least, I did.) Now see the movie, with Robert Pattinson as the veterinary student who runs away and joins the circus, Reese Witherspoon as the fetching equestrian star and Christoph Waltz ("Inglourious Basterds") in another twisted role as the animal trainer/third wheel. I don't know who's playing the elephant. Opens Friday. Anne Tallent, b

9. Earth Day
Plant a garden or a tree. Take the bus or a bike to work. Bring your own bags to the grocery store. Or just consider killing the Earth just a little less on Friday. Anne Tallent, b

10. 'Cougar Town'
I guess if you didn't get enough Courteney Cox while watching "Scream 4" this past weekend, you can catch her on TV. "Cougar Town" returns from hiatus 9:31 p.m. Monday, WMAR/ABC. Daniele Kees, B
