Dengue Fever, the Los Angeles/Cambodian pop band, is pulling a Willy Wonka: In support of Record Store Day, the release of the band’s upcoming album, Cannibal Courtship, will include five randomly inserted golden tickets that will guarantee the recipient free entry to any Dengue Fever-headlined show until 2013. The tickets were made by guitarist Zac Holtzman and are the latest in music’s inevitable cross-pollination with cereal box sweepstakes.



Record Store Day is April 16, and looks to be a doozy. Cannibal Courtship comes out April 19 via Fantasy and will be the band’s sixth studio album. Dengue Fever is going on tour for three months in the United States, and hey—five people going to those shows are getting in for free. How’s that for fan service?
