Miami's Jaialai blends dream-pop with shoe-gaze and psych for a captivating intonation. With members hailing from Venezuela, El Salvador, and of Cuban heritage, hints of their respective backgrounds and Miami culture are shined upon in their sound.

The quartet's last release, the EP "As Sweet As I Was" came out March 12th 2021. On the EP each song tells a story and sets a mood throughout the EP. "These songs are more bouncy and melodic, which is odd considering they were written at the beginning of a global pandemic," says Sardiñas. "But maybe we were trying to contrast the social climate."

"It's about the loss of innocence and the challenges of letting go and facing the world by yourself," adds guitarist & vocalist Jovi Adames. "It's also a reference to looking back and trying to learn from our mistakes and to find ourselves again amidst the world we are leaving at the moment."

Rounded out by Mario Lemus on bass and Richard Boullon on drums, Jaialai's goal is to recreate a live feel in their records. Miami New Times says, "Jaialai has earned its title as one of Miami's most exciting rock bands" and As Sweet As I Was follows the release of last year's debut LP Say So and Culebra EP in early 2020.



About Mission Theater

Experience a slice of Portland history. What is now known simply as “the Mission” was originally home to the Swedish Mission Covenant congregation in the early 20th century, and despite its staid, buttoned up appearance, this place now hosts live music, video dance nights and special events on select nights each month. 


We will follow all state and local Covid-19 guidelines in place at the time of each show. Proof of full vaccination or negative Covid-19 test may be required for entry. Some events may have additional measures put in place by the performers. Please make sure to check back here before attending as policies are subject to change. No refunds will be given, all sales are final.


The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub to event space, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
