The Doll Hut

Saturday night I went to the Doll Hut, the former truck stop that, under the previous owner (as Linda’s Doll Hut), served as a launch pad for a number of local punk bands. I’d been meaning to check it out since the new owners sorted out their little permitting problem. The place was perfect. Smaller than some of the garages in south county, it’s a dive bar overlooking the 5 FWY in the semi-industrial part of Anaheim just north of Disneyland. The most popular drink seems to be a 24 ounce can of Pabst Blue Ribbon for $5. For food they sell Cheetos and provide Tabasco on request. Still, I knew I was in the right spot when, shortly after I arrived between sets, the juke box began to play The Animal’s “The House of the Rising Sun.” Suddenly, the patrons started whooping and soon most of them were singing along. The highlight of the evening was the set by Brass Knuckle Voodoo culminating with a cover of Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child.”
