Best Local Band

Tom Catmull and the Clerics

Readers' Pick

Also, Best Musician

Last year, Tom joked to the Indy that he’s little more than a beer salesman. He’s not far off the mark in some ways; whether he’s at the Union Club or Chico Hot Springs, his music does go well with a cold beer. But over the years, Tom and his merry band of musical misfits have become so much more. They’re a staple of downtown Missoula. They’re a hit at local weddings. Heck, the Decemberists’ Colin Meloy took the stage at the Union last year alongside the Clerics for a one-song cameo, and the Clerics were so on, it sounded rehearsed. So next time you see Tom and the band, make sure they know they aren’t the side dish to a night of drinking beer. They’re the main course. Tom Catmull and the Clerics: tomcatmull.com
