If you want to meet the very incarnation of earthy, raw-boned, dusty-booted, deep-rooted American rock 'n' roll, drop by Linda's Doll Hut one of these Tuesday nights. You'll find Jimmy Camp strumming hard on his old Guild acoustic guitar, both arms sleeved with tattoos, including gothic script proclaiming this black sheep son of a preacher to be "white trash."

When Jimmy Camp went to work in 1989 manning a phone bank for Lois Lundberg, an Orange County political consultant, he was just another apolitical rocker who needed a day job. With punk rock influences such as the Clash and the Ramones from his high school days, and blues and country music soaked up during a three-year sojourn in Austin, Texas, in the late '80s, Camp was a well-rounded, well-qualified musician.

In a sequel to one of last year's most enjoyable and conceptually savvy daylong rock festivals, Hootenanny '97 will play again at Oak Canyon Ranch in Santiago Canyon. It brings together some of rock's key originators along with younger traditionalists and some rambunctious modern-rockers who have one foot in punk and another in roots-rock tradition. Headlining the July 5 concert are a couple of rock's founding cornerstones, Chuck Berry and the guitar-and-drums duo of Scotty Moore and D.J.

Mt. Islip (pronounced eye-slip) is not named, as you might guess, for a clumsy mountaineer, but for Canadian George Islip, who homesteaded in San Gabriel Canyon a century ago. The mountain is not one of the tallest San Gabriel Mountain peaks, but its relatively isolated position on the spine of the range makes it stand out. The summit offers the hiker fine views of the middle portion of the Angeles National Forest high country and of the metropolis. Mt.

Linda Jemison, who nurtured hundreds of Southern California roots-rock, alternative and punk bands during her decade running Linda's Doll Hut in Anaheim, is resurrecting her role as a champion of local music with a new series of free concerts starting Sunday at the Grove of Anaheim. Jemison sold the Doll Hut last year to start a new career as a talent manager, but says she decided to resume "doing what I do best" after discussions with Grove officials.

Jimmy Camp of Orange says he has been frustrated trying to buy concert or sporting-event tickets online just as they go on sale only to see them sell out within minutes before he can buy anything. He blames ticket-buying software that allows scalpers to sweep up thousands of tickets before regular fans get a shot. On Tuesday, a state Assembly panel approved legislation that would make it a misdemeanor to use such robotic software to buy tickets. “Fans deserve fair access,” Camp told the Assembly Judiciary Committee, which voted 8-0 to approve AB 329. It still requires approval by the full Assembly and Senate.

Both Janice Hahn, the Democratic candidate for Congress in California’s 36 th district and her opponent, Republican Craig Huey, have condemned a Web ad (see video below) created by an outside conservative group that some have labeled sexist and offensive. But such viral videos, as the label suggests, take on a life of their own and are hard to kill. The ad, which features a street-gang motif, superimposes Hahn’s face on a stripper dancing on a pole, and suggests that the Los Angeles councilwoman coddled gang members.

* MOVIES: Amid such prestigious but flawed pictures as "Marvin's Room" and "One Fine Day," there's the clever and gory "Scream" (general release), in which Wes Craven and his writer, Kevin Williamson, spoof horror pictures, especially those aimed at teens, while generating plenty of thrills and chills. It's gleefully subversive as it explores the relationship between gory movies and their audience. With Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Drew Barrymore and Henry Winkler.

IF you're seeking a nearby secluded patch of forest in which to stake a tent, try Little Jimmy Trail Camp, just an hour north of La Canada Flintridge. The camp, accessed only by foot, sits among magnificent, shade-providing Jeffrey and sugar pines on fairly flat terrain that's covered with a cushy blanket of pine needles.
