First Release of Crunchies Awards Ceremony Tickets. Grab Em Fast.

The first batch of 150 tickets to attend the Crunchies Awards celebrating the best tech accomplishments of 2009 are on sale now, courtesy of Eventbrite.

The Crunchies Awards will be held at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco on Friday, January 8, 2010 at 7:30 pm PST. Orchestra seats are $75 and Balcony seats are $45. Along with our co-hosts, GigaOm and VentureBeat, we will announce the winners from 18 different award categories live on stage.


We welcome back the Richter Scales as part of our evening’s festivities. Year one, the Richter Scales delighted us with a live version of Here Comes Another Bubble… turns out they were right because last year the acapella group had to console us with You Gotta Have Heart. Lets hope they can predict a promising 2010. Other special guest appearances and surprises are in the works for ceremony guests.


Orchestra and balcony tickets include access to the after party hosted across the street in City Hall’s Grand Rotunda through midnight. There will be a sponsor-hosted bar, savory nibbles and desserts, music and a game room, featuring a mix of traditional and online games to play. Check out more party photos from 2008 and 2007.


There are plenty of ways to sponsor and support the after-party energy. Contact Jeanne Logozzo or Heather Harde if you’d like to sponsor: card-game tables, demo tables, photo booths or walls, drinks or food, giveaways and prizes and the like. We have creative packages available in all shapes and sizes. Room for award benefactors and entertainment sponsors for the ceremony too.

We could also use some volunteer help. First, we’d love some official event photographers, both for the ceremony and after party. Please contact us if you have high energy, a sharp eye and would like to volunteer to support the community. We also need a handful of student volunteers to help with set-up and admissions. Please contact contact Gene if you’d like to be a volunteer. Thank you.

Remember that voting is open through midnight PST, Wednesday, January 6. Everyone is eligible and encouraged to vote daily for their favorite people, products and companies of the year.

Hope to see you there.

UPDATE: The first batch of tickets sold out quickly. Our final ticket releases will be Monday, December 28 and Wednesday, December 30 at 12 pm PST. Additional details here.
