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"
