The event is being held on Friday, January 9 at the beautiful Herbst Theater in San Francisco. And we’re also holding an extravagant (read: free drinks and cool music from MySpace) after party across the street at City Hall’s Rotunda from 9 – midnight. MySpace is bringing a celebrity DJ, and we will also feature a gaming room with a variety of online and offline games (if you are interested in demo’ing, contact jlogo at earthlink.net or heather at beta.techcrunch.com).
Among other surprises at the event, you’ll see the famous Richter Scales make a return performance. We’ve commissioned them to write a special song just for the Crunchies.
Thank you to the following companies who have stepped up to help sponsor the 2008 Crunchies Awards: Amiando, Charles River Ventures, Mayfield, Microsoft, MySpace, Media Temple and UStream. If you would like to add your name to that list and be part of something special, contact jlogo at earthlink.net or heather atbeta.techcrunch.com. There are many creative ways to show your support and help us recognize innovation and entrepreneurship in tech.
Look for final nominations later this week.
See you all soon!
