Nick Marcucci and Ebony March discuss their favorite things.

The Cha Cha

Two friends. Two opinions. Desert Guide contributing writer Nick Marcucci and Editor Ebony March discuss their favorite happenings and places in the Coachella Valley. We call their dance … The Cha Cha.

Ebony: Nicholas, let’s tell the readers what For the Record is all about.

Nick: There have been several of these performances in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. They take the best singers, and a popular film director or movie, and it’s made into a cabaret show. The [performers] sing the soundtrack of the directors’ work. There have been a bunch of them: The Marshalls, Scorsese, the Coen brothers. They even featured Tarantino in the past.

Ebony: We were actually able to see the Marshalls’ For the Record--

Nick: All that music from Pretty Woman and Big — It was amazing.

Ebony: You know what I think? I think you and I are a lot like Garry and Penny Marshall.

Nick: I think so, too. We look a lot like them.

Ebony: Yeah, we really do. Except I think you’re more like Penny and I’m Garry.

Nick: I agree. It’s striking, the resemblance.

Ebony: The films of Robert Zemekis will be featured in For the Record June 18 and 19 at Ace Hotel & Swim Club.

Nick: Check it out.
