Saturday is the busiest night of the Capital Pride Festival, thanks to the annual parade, which snakes through Dupont and Logan Circle neighborhoods beginning at 6:30. Once it's over, there are numerous official and unofficial after-parties around town, plus the usual barhopping on 17th Street NW. But of all the options, we're most jazzed about the "Homo Erectus - The Evolution of Pride" closing party at the Washington Hilton. The evolution of this 18-and-older party is no mystery: Take DJs from the city's hottest indie/alternative/electro gay and lesbian dance parties, and put them in a multi-ballroom hotel setting with a Teenage Caveman theme. Selectors for the evening include Shea Van Horn and Matt Bailer of the fabulous Kylie-meets-the-Ramones Mixtape party, Junebullet of the rockin' She.Rex all-women night, DJ Majr of Cobalt's monthly Shift event, Ca$$idy from the electro-sleazy Garutachi, Natty Boom of the dance floor-friendly Anthology of Booty, DJ Rad from Wonderland's all-over-the-map Pink Sock, Miss Lesbanannie . . . and the list goes on. Put on your Captain Caveman costume and get down in the jungle-themed room, hot and heavy in the stalagmite-filled Bedrock Cave and prehistoric with a six-foot T. Rex-shaped ice luge. So much fun that the hotel is offering $99 rooms to help you sleep it off. Tickets are $25 in advance and more at the door, so get a move on.
