Last Thursday (May 15) at Manhattan's 79th Street Boat Basin, located on the banks of the Hudson River, folk balladeer Pete Yorn took to the stage to pluck out an 11-song acoustic set for the throngs of gleeful, snazzy revelers sipping gratis beers at the Amsterdam-themed Amstel Light Lounge 1870 event, sponsored by Spin.

But with a line stretching down the block, and only so much room within the archaic, brick enclosure, some were unable to join in on the booze-, food-, and music-fueled evening. But here, those on hand that joyous night can relive their experience, as those who missed out can join in on the fun with exclusive clips of Yorn strutting through sing-along renditions of hits "Life on a Chain," "Strange Condition," "Model American," and "For Us."

To watch the videos, click the links below, and prepare to sing-along as Yorn, smile intact, offers rare acoustic renditions of his biggest hits, and sways fans with his sharp fingerpicking, throwback harmonica blowing, and charming stage presence.
