        The Tale of the Dog – Backyard Dinner and Conversation with the Filmmakers

        The Family Dog was one of most influential rock-music venues in Denver history….and also the most mysterious. Debuting in 1967, the Dog’s stage was graced by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead and slews of other seminal acts. Yet it lasted only two years, and its demise is the stuff of legend. Learn about its psychedelic heyday and unpack its mysteries with filmmakers Dan Obarski and Scott Montgomery, who researched the venue’s storied past to produce the award-winning documentary The Tale of the Dog, told firsthand by the people who were there. Stream the film in advance, then a group of 8 will spend an evening with the moviemakers and one of the pioneers of electronic music, Paul Conley of Lothar and the Hand People, who is featured in the film. Choose from several menu options from Pasta Jay’s and take home your own The Tale of the Dog psychedelic music poster.

        Fine Print

        To be held on a mutually-agreed upon date prior to Fall 2021. Bidder can select dinner options from Pasta Jay’s catering menu. Weather-dependent, as meant for an outside event.
