FREE Phil Collins Day Parade

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

After a lot of thought and some research into interesting things that happened on February 15th (like Canada adopting the maple leaf flag), I realized that I’m writing about something too absurd to try and be clever in my introduction. Instead, I’m just going to tell you that tomorrow is apparently the fifth annual Phil Collins Day in Brooklyn, and this year marks the first ever Phil Collins parade.

That’s right, you can watch a parade dedicated to the man who brought Another Day in Paradise, Genesis and the soundtracks to Balto and Tarzan. If I had to guess British pop stars who’d be honored by a parade in Brooklyn, he’d be at the bottom of my list. But there will be floats drifting down the streets of Greenpoint for him tomorrow, along with a video clip filled party at Shayz Lounge.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
