In the latest installment of Poopgate, Dave Matthews Band issued an apology and donated $50,000 each to the Chicago Park District and Friends of the Chicago River in hopes of putting the tour bus sewage dump fiasco behind them. The organizations are much obliged, but the band isn't admitting blame and Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the civil suit against the band will go ahead anyway.
