Album Introduction: Live On Lakeside documents the final day’s performance at the Chicago stop of the Dave Matthews Band Caravan, a series of four multi-day festivals celebrating the group’s 20th anniversary in 2011. Though Matthews and his cohorts possess plenty of verve, they sound as if they’re waging war with one of those oppressive Midwest summers. The jams don’t explode so much as they build, plateau, and then melt. A good example is “Seek Up.” One of the oldest pieces in the set””first appearing on 1993’s Remember Two Things””it gradually grows into a moody exploration of neo-Weather Report fusion.
