Can someone give me an update on this band (Lydia). I saw them two years ago in what I'm pretty sure was their final tour. What changed? Did they just lose yet another female vocalist but decide to keep going?

yeah pretty much. I think someone else left too. Apparently their popularity exploded right before their 'farewell tour' (i think they picked up a lot of fans off the copeland tour), and it took Leighton by surprise, made him and the other guy decide to stick it out. Same lead vocals, now they don't have a female backup vocals, so far as I can tell. Which is a shame, because the harmonies are one of the best parts about Illuminate.

It's just Leighton and Craig (drummer) now. The original guitarist (Steve) left the band right before their farewell tour and Mindy left a while before that.

I was actually at this show, and I have to say that some of the Lydia fans really got on my nerves during All Get Out's set. I managed to get to the front for their set and during the quiet parts of "Let Me Go" all I could hear were people having obnoxious conversations.

Any chance you remember (roughly) Lydia's set list? Or at least, about how many songs from each record they played?

Edit: Nevermind, found it on setlist.fm -

Valise was ridiculously good at this show! Personally thought they were the best band there.
