Get your browsers ready and flex your quick-like-lightning Telebears appointment muscles, because presale tickets will be available at Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 7. We’ve received a tip from an unreliable source (the digital grapevine) that the magic word of the day will be “polaroid.”

Jason Mraz (a.k.a. the coolest scatting cat in the music biz) will be performing at the Greek Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 2 at 3 p.m.

To be honest, the first wave of internet presale tickets were up for grabs at the end of last month, but they closed those flood gates not too long afterward. A quick Google search will also lead you to a few lesser-known ticket distributors who claim to be selling tickets right now, but buy at your own risk. Or just bring your laptop to class tomorrow morning and try not to yell with joy/fury as you click-click-click at 10 a.m. sharp.

Last night, Wilco maxed the Greek Theatre with thousands of fans old and young, between-songs banter and (of course) plenty of Berkeley smoke. The Clog managed to snag seats and a few choice clips.

Above, Wilco serenaded the not-quite-high-as-Portland crowd with “A Shot in the Arm.” Daily Cal arts writers were also present, so be sure to check out the review on Monday.

We can’t remember if this was encore No. 1 or No. 2 (yes, there were two encores). Our concertmate, a hardcore with four Wilco concerts under the proverbial belt, nudged us and said, “Get this one! He dances!”

Voila, Wilco’s “Hummingbird,” complete with a little jog and boogie number. OK, it’s not much, but if it makes you crack a smile, who are we to judge?
