Video: Pirate Radio debut with Jason Urick

Today we debut a new series we're very excited about- Pirate Radio. The Windy docks just outside our studios on Navy Pier. One of its pirates invited us to bring musicians on-board for special performances, so we did just that. Our first venture was a little non-traditional: Baltimore-based electronic musician Jason Urick. Urick is a fixture in Baltimore's art and music scene, curating festivals and performing with WZT Hearts. He's on Chicago's Thrill Jockey label and was in town to play The Hideout. We really dug his reggae-flavored tunes- a perfect prelude to walking the plank.
