From a 1999 Dallas Morning News article:

...press him a bit, and Mr. Pollard admits he still has "a slightly bad taste in my mouth" from GbV's sole Dallas show, in 1994 at Deep Ellum Live. "I remember Ween was playing Dallas on the same night, so the managers decided to put the two shows together," he says. "All three bands on our tour got to play for 25 minutes, and Ween got to play for 3-1/2 hours, so we got slightly screwed over." Still, 25 minutes of GbV is better than two hours of most bands.
