The Tale of the Dog charts the struggles and triumphs of a pioneering hippie rock club trying to establish a foothold in Denver. The Family Dog brought to Denver, for the first time, such premier bands as the Grateful Dead, the Doors, Cream and Jefferson Airplane. The Tale of the Dog unearths a transformative moment in Denver’s history and its place in the greater history of rock music, poster art and the watershed cultural changes of the Sixties.
The film was created by Scott B. Montgomery, associate professor of art history, and Dan Obarski. The project was generously supported by a University PROF grant, as well as with the help of several DU students.
