What? The Doll Hut's back?! How the hell did that happen?
salsphotos.net Long live the Hut!
In December of 2012, the Hut's tiny room full of local punks were sobbing in their beers and shouting in the streets after the Yeastie Boys ended the final gig before OC's iconic punk club would close it's doors and later re-brand itself as a Latin bar. We were sure the place was done for, a chapter in our local music history closed forever. That is until the Hut's former show promoter Michael "Mac" McGarvey basically came along and said "Psyyyyych!"
A year after the club's supposed extinction, the Doll Hut is now re-opened thanks to McGarvey and his longtime girlfriend Tammy Butler, who bought the place from the previous owners and rehabbed it back to it's former self. That just basically meant stamping out the bright colors, putting some blood and sweat back on the floor and slapping band stickers back on every wall. Ah, and suddenly the world is right again!More »
