Eye Opener was held at the Showplace Theater in Buffalo on February 23, 2002. It featured happy hardcore from Spree, Frisky & D-Minus, Kandievibes and Kandiekraver. SOS and Dose the Alien changed things up with some trance and Major Malfunction played some hard house. MC Specs had hosting duties. The event venue was packed with grimey gross stuff dripping from the ceilings of the venue.
