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.
