Nineteen ninety-seven was the year the Green Haven Prison went insane. The winter hadn’t produced a single snowstorm that lasted for more than an hour before turning to rain and slush, and what should have been covered with a velvety-smooth blanket of white went on being gray and lifeless and pitiful, as if God Himself saw to it that the twenty-five hundred inmates and corrections officers living and working inside nine concrete cell blocks never once forgot where they were and why they were put there in the first place.”

– from Vincent Zandri’s novel “As Catch Can,” 1999

Writer-drummer Vincent Zandri and his bandmates in the Blisterz are hosting and headlining the semi-regular “punk rock night” at Jillian’s in Albany on Wednesday, August 26. Also performing will be Wipe Out Marshall and Catching Cadence.
