Digable discussion

David Alvarez is the closest thing to Donna Frye since Donna Frye. That is, Alvarez, the youthful member of the San Diego City Council who represents the largely Latino District 8, isn’t afraid to ruffle the feathers of the political establishment if it means being able to say what's on his mind or vote in a way that's in the best interest of his constituents and not the powers-that-be. Alvarez will take a seat at Ryan Bros. Coffee (1894 Main St. in Barrio Logan) at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, as the next guest in Voice of San Diego’s interview series, One Voice at a Time. The series, which has recently featured Frye and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, is fun, informal and engaging, and Voice CEO Scott Lewis always comes armed with a set of provocative questions. Suggested donation: $5.


Digable kars

Don't let all the K's in the title fool you. The Fiesta de Kustom Kulture has nothing to do with the Kardashian klan. Well, maybe there's one thing in common: Both involve having a big ol' trunk space. The fiesta, happening from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, in Old Town (2474 San Diego Ave.), is a celebration of custom cars and low-brow art. The streets will be lined with cool hot rods, muscle cars and other awesome-looking gas guzzlers. In the artist's alley, you can browse works of art that pay homage to icons like Von Dutch, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and Dean Jeffries. Cruise the area, grab food from some of Old Town's Mexican joints and take in the entertainment all around you. 


Digable film

For his book / project Broken Manual, photographer Alex Soth searched for men who wanted to disappear from society and then convinced them to let him document how and where they live. Filmmakers Laure Flammarion and Arnaud Uyttenhove documented three months of this search for the 56-minute film Somewhere to Disappearin which they follow Soth as he roams the U.S., seeking out folks who don't want to be found. At 9:15 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, jdc Fine Art (2400 Kettner Blvd., #208 in Little Italy) hosts a screening of the film. Admission is $5 at the door; if you'd like to reserve a seat, it'll cost you $10 and requires a phone call to  619-985-2322. 


Digable to-do

The month-long anniversary celebration for little sis to Blind Lady, Tiger!Tiger! Tavern (3025 El Cajon Blvd.), is already underway but there’s more tasty, feel-good events coming up. On Friday, Sept. 7, and Saturday, Sept. 8, there’s a mini-sour festival happening; the beer lineup includes Russian River Supplication, The Bruery Oude Tart, Petrus Aged Pale, Allagash Confluence, Craftsman Honesty Ale, Greenflash Little Freak and Dogfish Head Festina Peche. Automatic Brewing Company will release Tiger!Tiger!'s anniversary stout on Friday, Sept. 14, and it's rumored that coffee and coconut are in the mix. Don’t miss out on OkTIGERfest, happening Friday and Saturday, Sept. 21-22, with commemorative steins for sale and refill specials all weekend long.
