Hugo House always brings the blockbusters for their literary series, but this one could be the highlight of the season: The hilarious and profane Sherman Alexie headlines a slate of performers who are just hitting their prime. Indie-lit god Kevin Sampsell brings his A game up from Portland, Mormon-sex memoirist and poet Nicole Hardy will likely sear the hairs from out of your ears, and Rachel Flotard of Visqueen will sing a handful of new songs. “While You Were Sleeping” is the theme, but this lineup won’t bore you for a second. (Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave, 322-7030, 7:30 pm, $25)
