Rock Band This World Fair Releases Debut Album December 16, 2008

Minneapolis, MN. (Top40 Charts/ This World Fair Official Website) - Minneapolis-based rock band This World Fair releases a self-titled debut album on December 16, 2008 on CSB Entertainment.

The band is led by Minneapolis native Chris Kalgren, who writes and performs original music under the stage name This World Fair. Described as "the pop side of rock and the rock side of pop," This World Fair features songs produced by Al Clay (Pink, Pixies, Blur).

This World Fair formed in 2005 as a four-piece band and signed to EMI Records later that year. The band gained national and international recognition through their original song and video for "Don't Make Me Wait," which was featured on the soundtrack for the 2007 DreamWorks thriller Disturbia (DreamWorks Pictures/Lakeshore Records). This World Fair completed three national tours between 2006 and 2008, performing with Guster, Phantom Planet and Under the Influence of Giants. Since early 2008, Kalgren has driven This World Fair as an independent solo effort. The first album release comes at the end of This World Fair's 25-date national tour including stops at Los Angeles' Viper Room and Summerfest, the world's largest music festival.

"Chris has an extraordinary depth of talent and his musicality resonates deeply with me and I believe it will universally," said Grammy-award winning producer and This World Fair manager Stephen Short. "When I hear the vocals of This World Fair, I know that people will have the opportunity to have their lives uplifted."

Through its accessible guitar-driven melodies and well-crafted lyrics, Kalgren provides a road map to travel the emotional terrain that exists between people. This World Fair's opening track "Can't Stop Falling" shimmers with a certain urgency, while the irresistible "Drama" pokes good-natured fun at a girl who just can't help herself when it comes to being the center of attention. The gorgeous "San Francisco" is ushered in by strings that give the song an epic quality.
