Monday, Monday ...

In the moood for music to ease you into the week?

Brooklyn's own Eleanor Whitmore's free at Pete's Candy Store, 9:30 p.m. Her mama sings opera and her daddy sings folk (there's a song title right there), but she seems to lean more toward her father's folk style, which is just fine by me. You can catch her at Pete's every Monday in April. Take the G or L and walk to 709 Lorimer St. Williamsburg.

If layoffs have got your working double -- or if you're one of the many laid off -- take a note from Abe Lincoln: "I laugh because I must not cry."

TONY recommends Upright Citizen Brigade's Whiplash (free, every Monday, 11:30 p.m.) -- this week featuring Wyatt Cenac (who, of course, is awesome on the Daily Show). Have an earlier bedtime? Spank's at 6:30, 8 and 9:30 for $5. Take the 1 to 28th or C, E to 23rd. Walk to 307 W. 26th (by the Gristedes at 8th).
