Gilmore Girls: Concert Interruptus

Lorelai heads up the Stars Hollow Charity Rummage Sale and ends up buying a sweatshirt that Luke donated. When she wears it around town, Lorelai is bewildered when Luke is angry to see it. Later, Sookie reveals to Lorelai that the previous owner of the sweatshirt was Luke's first serious girlfriend. Meanwhile, Sookie is given tickets to the Bangles concert in New York and Rory invites Madeline, Paris, and Louise to go with them to New York.
