I love me some Metallica.

Ahead of the February 11 sale of the team’s 2017 regular season tickets, the San Francisco Giants have released their special events calendar.

rOn the docket are a number of music fan favorites, including Metallica Night and Grateful Dead Tribute night, as well as a few heritage-themed game days and entertainment-based occasions.

Some events will give away special swag, like a bobblehead or hat, so be sure to arrive early to those games to score a cool souvenir.

Among the notable events:

April 24, September 15: Marvel Day

The first Marvel Day celebrates the forthcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” and offers up a limited edition Giants jersey-clad Rocket the Raccoon bobblehead. The second iteration promotes “Thor: Ragnarok” and will give away a Giants-themed Thor bobblehead.

April 21: Brewfest

This game versus the San Diego Padres includes admission to the two hour-long pre-game beer festival, along with a complimentary tasting card.

May 26, September 30: Star Wars Day

The May game, against the Atlanta Braves, will give away limited edition “Star Wars”-themed baseballs. The September game against the Padres will also give away a TBA souvenir.

June 24, September 16: Pixar Day

The first Pixar Day pays homage to “Cars 3,” and the second celebrates the upcoming Día de Muertos-themed film, “Coco.”

June 25: Summer of Love Anniversary

Fifty years after San Francisco experienced its famed “Summer of Love,” the Giants will pay tribute to it. This game ticket includes a Giants-themed bus collectible, as well as a show with “music bringing you back to feeling like you’re in the Haight-Ashbury district 50 years ago.”

July 17: Bruce Lee Tribute Night

The San Francisco martial arts master will be celebrated in this special game against Cleveland, with fans getting a Bruce Lee collectible item.

July 21: Wine Fest

Come early to sample the wines of Lodi, California in a 2-hour pre-game wine festival and get a reusable Giants-themed wine pouch before the team takes on the Padres.

July 24: Christmas in July

One of the best takeaway items of the season comes in the form of a orange and black Giants snapback cap with a holiday-themed pattern on it.

August 3: Grateful Dead Night

Dead Heads unite in this Bay Area-friendly game against the Oakland A’s. Fans will be able to walk away with a pretty sweet looking Dancing Bear bobblehead, and watch members of the original band and Jerry Garcia’s family hang out on the field ahead of the game.

August 7: Metallica Night

Just a few days later, Metallica will appear to rock the crowd as fans get collector’s edition Giants and Metallica-themed t-shirts (only available with special event ticket).

September 1: Star Trek Night

For the 30th anniversary of “Star Trek,” Trekkies with the special event ticket can nab a rare Starfleet Command-themed San Francisco shirt, and watch “pre-game and in-game elements” centered around the franchise.

September 29: Oktoberfest

Like the Brewfest, Oktoberfest will feature a 2-hour bier-swigging event ahead of the game against the Padres. Lederhosen-printed Giants shirts will be available to those in attendance.
