BROOKLYN - A business in Bushwick is combining a love of coffee with a love of live music.

The First Live Coffee House features emerging artists and gives them a platform to promote their live shows around the city.

Artists are interviewed and then give performances that are all viewable through a live stream online.

"It's a multicamera live stream, and right now we have 24,000 followers on our live stream channel," says owner Danny Garcia. "We want to build that platform along with other platforms like YouTube and basically promote live music."

First Live is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
