Tickets for the Crunchies startup awards ceremony and party, which will be held on January 18 in San Francisco, are available now for purchase. The event will be held at the Herbst Theatre at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by a party. This event is being produced by Read/WriteWeb, Venture Beat, GigaOm and TechCrunch.

We’ve got a number of surprises that we’ll be announcing over the next couple of weeks. The first – in addition to the startup awards, Richter Scales will be singing their famous (infamous?) Here Comes Another Bubble song live at the event.

Over 45,000 votes have been cast for 100 startups in 20 award categories. Who’ll win? That will be a closely held secret until the night of the event. Voting goes through midnight pst, January 10.
