WREK 91.1 FM’s venerable, eclectic show “Lost in the Stacks” will present the first-ever stage performance of the program, “Lost in the Stacks Live!,” Tuesday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Eddie’s Attic in downtown Decatur.

Lost in the Stacks – the one-and-only Research Library Rock ’n’ Roll radio show, produced by the Georgia Tech Library and WREK Atlanta – is known for its off-kilter mix of library talk and music, as hosts Ameet Doshi and Charlie Bennett free-associate an hour of music, interviews and library talk every Friday for lunch.

For the live event, Doshi and Bennett picked a theme – “Georgia Blood and Southern Love” – to highlight the rock-and-roll sensibility of Lost in the Stacks and bring together some of their favorite Atlanta and Georgia-based writers, scholars and musicians for a celebration of local writing and music.

For Bennett, it’s a natural progression for the show.

“I love the idea of being in the room with a band and connecting with the audience face-to-face, and it seemed like we should go for a more immediate, visceral theme, so … blood and love,” he said.

“Georgia Blood and Southern Love” will feature in-person interviews with: Augusta crime writer Brian Panowich, whose first novel, “Bull Mountain,” was one of Amazon’s Best Books of the Year in 2015; Hollis Gillespie, an award-winning humor writer, Atlanta columnist, and writing teacher; and Dr. Monica C. Miller, Assistant Director of the Writing and Communication Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Flannery O’Connor scholar.

Atlanta blues band Chickens and Pigs, led by singer-songwriter Jeff Evans, will provide the trademark, thematically connected, music sets. The band will kick off the evening with an opening two-song set, followed by additional sets in between the guest interviews and a final, closing piece.
