Feast your ears on the Mercury's March playlist, a collection of 31 songs from artists playing in Portland this month.

There's a boatload of shows worth prying your butt off the couch for this March: extremely badass Japanese punk band CHAI, LA rapper Vince Staples and his tour opener JPEGMAFIA, whose album Veteran was one of my most-played of 2018, country singer-turned-pop-star Maren Morris, Better Oblivion Community Center (the new duo of Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst), seminal indie rock band Low, Nashville blues singer/shredder Adia Victoria (FYI, her song "Different Kind of Love" is one of my favorites on this playlist), and multi-talented singer/songwriter/producer James Blake. Whew!
