I'm trying to find a venue that has a DJ/musician that makes the music live. For example

I am in NYC and want to find music like this. It sounds like DeepHouse/Electronica/Jazz, but being made live. I can't come up with a single Google query to describe it, in order to find a venue that has it.

There must be venues in NYC that have live productions of this genre on the regular. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hi Raj, welcome to Music.SE. Our site is about the practice of music, and this question is of the "Music Appreciation" variety, which is defined as off-topic here. There is a proposal on Area 51 gaining traction now that would be the proper place for this kind of question. –  NReilingh May 17 at 4:45
    
I felt this fell into the category of Music Performance. I was simply looking for a name for this type of performance. But if you feel moving this question to "Music Fans" is better suited, I will. Although I don't really see how to properly post a question there. –  Raj May 17 at 6:06
    
Your question is about a performance of music, but it is not about the art and craft of music performance. Music Fans is a site proposal, meaning once it gains enough followers on Area 51 it will be turned into a full site. –  NReilingh May 17 at 7:02
    
For what it's worth, the band you've referenced might best be described as "experimental live electronica", and it's entirely possible that there aren't any other bands doing what they're doing. –  NReilingh May 17 at 7:08
    
Thanks for answering (I'd hate to have to sit back and wait until Music Fans comes to be to ask this question)! I have quite a few examples of other bands that do the same thing, so it's not unique to them. What does the operative word "experimental" mean? Is that redundant to "live"? –  Raj May 17 at 13:01
