Guest Playlist: Come Out & Play SF

Posted By on Thu, Oct 21, 2010 at 4:10 PM

This weekend marks the inaugural Bay Area iteration of New York's (and one time Amsterdam's) beloved Come Out & Play Festival, a weekend's worth of sportive mischief in and around the Panhandle and the Upper Haight. Full-contact location-based Scrabble? Check. Unusually polite ninja fighting? Check. Humanoid Asteroid? Check. An alternate-universe game based on The One starring Jet Li and Delroy Lindo? Freakin' checkmate.

In preparation for a weekend of city-size fun, we asked CO&P coordinator and co-founder Catherine Herdlick to pick out some tunes to put the play back in playlist. Go figure, she turned it into a multi-player activity. "I've built this playlist in the same style that we run the festival," she explains: "driven by the community of awesome game designers and other people that make it happen."

Catherine Herdlick, CO&P co-founder and game designer:

• Los Campesinos!, "You! Me! Dancing!"

Excellent use of the exclamation point. And let's face it: most game designers have a lot of spirit but two left feet.

Anna Lotko, CO&PSF project manager and game designer:

• Mika, "Relax Take It Easy"

Because I want to relax and take it easy during the festival.

• MGMT, "Time to Pretend"

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
