This week we spoke with Beth Ferraro, creative director of Anacostia-area galleries Honfleur Gallery and The Gallery at Vivid Solutions .

Ferraro, who “grew up listening to The Beatles and a lot of punk music,” has progressed into “...mostly surfy, reggae and a little indie-ish [music]. In the mornings, I still listen to some punk. Other mornings it’s pop or ’80s music or my chanting box from India.”

Her playlist follows.

The Beatles, “Dear Prudence

Talking Heads, “Road to Nowhere

Social Distortion, “Another State of Mind

Little Wings,Look At What The Light Did Now

Architecture in Helsinki, “W.O.W.

Stevie Wonder, “Please Don’t Go

Dusty Springfield, “Breakfast In Bed

Mishka, “Above The Bones

Digable Planets, “Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)
