Few artists of recent memory have proven their originality and devotion to pure American heavy metal like CHRISTIAN MISTRESS. Formed in Olympia, Washington in 2008, the band quickly distinguished themselves through their grit and style as well as through their unique vocal presence, the rich guitar harmonies, and the strong rhythmic presence of bass and drums.

After releasing a demo and a single in 2009, and following a few US tours, 2010 saw CHRISTIAN MISTRESS partner with Olympia label 20 Buck Spin to release their debut full-length Agony & Opium, a release that led Spin to claim that “Christian Mistress might rule the world.” A national tour with Thrones followed. Agony & Opium also caught the attention of Relapse Records, who signed CHRISTIAN MISTRESS in June 2011. Shortly thereafter, the band entered Louder Studios in Grass Valley, California to record their second full length Possession, a 41-minute slab of traditional heavy metal. Released in February 2012, Possession netted the band widespread recognition, and was covered by publications as disparate as Cvlt Nation, MSN, and the New York Times. From the words of the New York Times “at first you think you know exactly what the record is giving you; on the third listen you’re still discovering it.” In the wake of Possession, the band embarked on a European trek through the UK, Italy, Germany, and several other countries that included a performance at Roadburn in the Netherlands. After having relocated to Portland, Oregon, the band returned in 2015 with To Your Death, an 8-song duelling guitars over drum and bass rager of pure American heavy metal with dark meditative moments. Christian Mistress toured extensively after To Your Death with a second European tour and US tour dates.

Simultaneously present and traditional, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS ignores the lines drawn between past, present and future, focusing only on serving the listener and their art. Now after 6 years hiatus, Christian Mistress brings their raucous grit and style back to the stage in 2023 with an exclusive Portland show at Mississippi Studios March 17, and an appearance at Hell’s Heroes fest in Houston, Texas March 25. Christian Mistress is thrilled to announce an additional show in their hometown to play Olympia at the Capitol Theater Backstage on April 8th.

Patrons, performers, staff, and volunteers are no longer required to wear masks or show proof of vaccination. The threat of covid, seasonal flu, and respiratory viruses are still out there. OFS will continue to provide masks (while supplies last – we have tons), surface and hand sanitizer, and regular air filtration system maintenance. We encourage mask-wearing at concerts and indoor gatherings and keep snacking and drinking in seating areas only.

If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home to avoid spreading COVID-19 to others. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you call out for your volunteer, stay at home, and come back when you feel better to minimize the spread and to help keep others at the theater healthy and keep our operations going.
