If there’s anyone who knows how to remain positive, it’s Kalmia Traver, a Vermont-bred musician who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in July. The frontwoman of Rubblebucket, 29, has battled her way back to the live stage after months of surgeries and treatment and the band, now based in Brooklyn, even put out a new EP last month called “Save Charlie.” Rubblebucket plays The Paradise tomorrow night to kick off a short tour.
