Philly is lucky to have a number of highly skilled musicians who perform on the streets when they’re not busy with other projects. Over a dozen of them have come together as the Brass, Skins & Strings Collective, and this month’s installment of the Lucky Old Souls series will feature a BSSC trio reduction — with Jafar Barron on cornet, Elliott Levin on reeds and poetry and Anthony Mohamed on percussion. Kicking off the night is drummer Doug Hirlinger and Waveform Razorback, a trio of a completely different stripe, with Matt Mitchell (of Tim Berne fame) on keyboards and Ben Gerstein covering the low end on trombone. — David R.
