Dallas-based Deaf Pedestrians were played on prime time Tuesday night. The band's song "Hail to the Geek" was featured in the new episode of the CW's "Beauty and the Geek" (yeah that show with hot, but dumb women and socially awkward men). We're happy for the Pedestrians. We're scanning YouTube for clips from the show, but until then, you can always stream the song over on the band's MySpace page. -- Chelsea Ide
