Davies Symphony HallUpdate: That was quick! Tickets have already sold out. The next batch will go on sale before the holidays, so stay tuned.

Tickets for Silicon Valley’s hottest annual event are on sale now.

That’s right, you can now buy the first, extremely limited batch of tickets to the Crunchies, which are coming up January 31, 2012.

Crunchies tickets go on sale at 10am today. We’re only making a few available in this batch, so act fast if you want to attend!

The Crunchies have been co-hosted by TechCrunch, GigaOm and VentureBeat every year since their inception in 2007 to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups. This year, the awards will be held in glamorous Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco (pictured here, with a lovely Henry Moore sculpture in the foreground), and we hear there will be a swell after-party.

Also, today is your last chance to get nominations in: We’re accepting them until December 13th, at 11:59pm PT.

There are 20 categories, including Best Startup, Best Mobile App, Best Design, and Best Technology Achievement. Last year, Twitter took the award for the Best Overall Startup, and you can check out the full list of 2010 winners.

In January, we’ll announce the finalists and call for a second round of voting.

Get your nominations in now.

And go buy your Crunchies tickets already!
