We recently spotted rock ‘n’ roller Joe Kupiec, the Ann Arbor-based musician from both Wild Savages and Blue Snaggletooth, at Woodruff’s Bar in Ypsilanti. The bass player is also a cook at Casey Tavern and a bartender at Blue Tractor BBQ, but his paramount loves are music, performing, playing pool, and living the rock ’n’ roll lifestyle. Joe collects records, VHS movies, vintage lighters, trinkets, old Western dime novels, and exotic thongs. He’s quite a busy guy, currently recording a new album at Metro 37 Studio with Blue Snaggletooth. His other band, Wild Savages, just finished recording their debut album and making a music video, both to be released this spring. Kupiec always dresses like a rock star, and his favorite places to shop for clothes are Get Up Vintage (Ann Arbor), Value World, Kiwanis Thrift Store,, and
