A day for Phil Collins


Apparently, February 15 is Phil Collins Day, and although the annual party in honor of the former Genesis-frontman has been on hiatus for the past few years, it is back on this Saturday at Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co. starting at 3pm. In its prior iterations, PCD included a parade with a marching band playing all the Phil Collins hits, revelers in Phil Collins masks, and presumably lots of drunken singalongs, but it’s not entirely clear what to expect of the 2020 revival. Evidently, a rep from Collins’ label proactively sent some vinyl records and other merch to be raffled off, which sounds promising, but honestly just the prospect of singing Against All Odds at the top of my lungs with a bunch of fellow fans of early MTV is enough for me. Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
