By the age of 12, Linda Jemison had fallen in love--with rock 'n' roll and the smell of stale beer. Clearly, the Doll Hut was her destiny. The Doll Hut--Linda's Doll Hut--is the remarkable little shack of a nightclub Jemison opened 10 years ago this week. There she presides as the fondly regarded, ever-nurturing den mother to the Orange County music scene.

One casualty of the new concert competition in Orange County is Linda Jemison's plan to open a new club in the Fullerton area. Jemison, much admired for supporting the local rock scene as the owner of Linda's Doll Hut, a tiny Anaheim club, says she will stick to that instead of opening a larger place that could run into booking conflicts with the Coach House and the Galaxy, the Freedman Forum or the new Glass House in Pomona. "I don't want to be in the middle of a brawl," she said.

Playing tonight: the New Morty Show, an 11-piece band. Eddie Reed's Big 15 Piece Orchestra is booked for for July 31.
