Pitch and Pale is an all-ages event featuring games, sports, live music and food inside the StubHub Center.

     This free event, dubbed the best Friday night hangout in Carson, is hosted the first Friday of each summer month. The most recent installment on Sept. 2 featured award-winning food trucks, live musical performances and free parking.

     The Alumni-Legends of Hip-Hop, featuring Dana Dane, Special Ed, Kwamé, Monie Love and Chubb Rock, headlined Pitch and Pale.

     The hip-hop pioneers played their most popular hits and had fans grooving all night.
     Those who didn’t crowd around the stage brought their lawn chairs and chose spots toward the rear, still getting the full effect of the music blasting toward them.

     During one of the song breaks, Dane pointed out how alive the crowd was and asked if anyone wanted to get on stage, but quickly took back the request.

     “Obamacare don’t cover stage dives,” Dane quipped.

     When the live music ended, The Alumni-Legends of Hip-Hop walked off stage, headed toward the food court and went out of their way to take pictures with fans.

     The event was pet-friendly with a special dog area provided by award-winning Camp Run-A-Mutt. It also had games like jumbo chess for children, and the bar featured television screens to entertain football fans.

     Food trucks lined up along the L.A. Galaxy’s home turf. CJ’s Wings, Bison Burger, Jeni’s Ice Creams, Chancho’s Tacos and My Father’s Barbeque were among the trucks serving well into the night.

     Well-known artists have performed at the first Friday event before. Previous music acts featured at Pitch and Pale included DW3, Pete Escovedo Latin Jazz Orchestra, Brasil Brazil and Daniel Bambaata Marley.

     L.A. Galaxy II midfielder Jaime Villarreal attended one of the events to sign autographs and take photos with fans. There was also an exclusive ticket package available for $5 that included a ticket to the following match and a free “This is L.A.” scarf.
