Hugo Ball is a polysexual, oppositional, surrealist monthly dance happening occurring on the third Saturday of each month at Smart Bar. The Hugo Ball Troupe—Justin Long, Eris Drew, Sevron, and sold —are a collective of musicians, selectors, writers, and artists. They have based Hugo Ball on a musical philosophy that transcends genre and time—one womans health might hear Severed Heads mixed with Terry “Housemaster” Baldwin, Section 25 and Gesloten Cirkel. All selectors play vinyl and all live shows are performed on hardware. Hard-dancing and democratized space are the politics of the dance floor.
