Alexander Herbert

Alexander Herbert, What About Tomorrow author

There’s a scene early on in the recent Russian film Leto where concertgoers sit quietly in their seats at a state-run concert hall, guards hovering over them while they watch a messy approximation of rock music on the stage. The music wasn’t punk exactly, but that scene represents all the authority one could rebel against in late Soviet society. Slavic studies scholar and Attleboro native Alexander Herbert recently released What About Tomorrow: An Oral History of Russian Punk from the Soviet Era to Pussy Riot, starting in an era when vinyl records were smuggled in and (less frequently) out of the country.
