Billboard to Present Humanitarian Award

By Waldo Jaquith
Billboard has announced that they will present Dave Matthews Band with their Humanitarian Award at their Roadwork Touring Awards. DMB has done a metric pantload of humanitarian work over the course of their career, quietly giving away many millions of dollars to charitable causes both large and small in the past decade. The October 25-26 event will take place in New York City, and will present a number of different awards to a variety of bands. Thanks to Derek Wong -- whose friends may now freak out -- for the news.
