Beck has been announced as the inaugural performer in the newly remodeled SF Masonic on Nob Hill for Sept. 19, and it's a sure sellout. We've got you covered: ticket presales for fans are live today, and the presale code is MORNING. Those who download Live Nation's app can get tickets starting Thursday, Sept. 4, at 10am. The general public onsale isn't until Friday, Sept. 5, at 10am.
Bob Dylan is set to play a three-night run at Oakland's Paramount Theater Oct. 28-30, and tickets go on sale this Friday, Sept. 5, at 10am. Chances are it'll sell out swiftly. (The last time Dylan played the relatively small theater, in 2005 with Merle Haggard, tickets went fast.) No special presale codes seem to be floating around, so in the great egalitarian spirit of his no-advance-tickets, cash-only show at the Warfield in 2010, everyone's on a level playing field to get a seat for what's sure to be a memorable run of shows.
And here's a unique one: NASA's Ames Research Center at Moffett Field in Mountain View is the Wonka Chocolate Factory of science geeks—it hasn't opened its doors to the public since 1997. That changes on Oct. 19 when NASA holds an open house, including a two-mile walking tour around the inner workings of the facility. Tickets are free, but need to be reserved. And they're available today right here.
