On Friday, December 2, 2011, there was quite a show at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, IA, as Hollywood Undead came to town. Performing along with them was Jimmy Hooligan aka M.O. Caiaus and Screaming For Silence. They played to a packed MAC arena and you could tell all the fans were there to have a great time. Even the local guys in Screaming For Silence and Jimmy Hooligan brought a crowd showing that fans support local music.

Then, on Monday, December 5th, Sokol Auditorium in Omaha, NE, hosted Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria. Both of them being on the Buried Alive tour currently with Avenged Sevenfold and Hollywood Undead, they got a chance to have an off day from the tour to perform in Omaha. Once again, there was a packed place for that show bringing people to the venue early waiting in line in the cold just so they could get a good standing spot inside.

Before the shows I got to interview all five bands and below you can find the links to the interviews.
