On June 13, 2009 Pumping Station: One held its grand opening ceremony at Co-Prosperity Sphere aptly named "Geek Prom". Attendees included PS:One members, visitors from CCCKC, American Science and Surplus, locals interested in a lesson in improper dancing and more. The event itself included musical performances by GAZEBO! vs. One Punch, Liz Revision, Thin Man, and one other DJ whose name I can't think of. Other entertainment on exhibit was a science fair competition, an up-to-the-minute photo booth and Graffiti Reasearch Labs' Laser Tag 2.0.
