Fans of 90s punk can be hardcore and all of that headbanging and moshing likely leaves them thirsty and hungry. Perhaps that's the reason the Sum 41 and Offspring show at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops earlier this month set a food and drink sales record.

City of Kamloops parks and civic operations manager Jeff Putnam says in a tweet that the Sum 41 and Offspring show on Dec. 2, set a record for the most food and beverage sales at the Sandman Centre.

Putnam says the Sandman Centre brings in about $750,000 to $1 million per year thanks to food and beverage sales, which in turn benefits the City budget.

“As part of our agreement with the food and beverage contractor, the City receives 20 per cent of gross revenue for food and beverage overall, so the more people in the facility, the more events we have, the more generally people consume food and beverage at the events, at the end of the year it contributes to the tax subsidy for the Sandman Centre,” Putnam says.
