Suck It, Cancer

2013 was a rough year for Kalmia Traver. The Rubblebucket vocalist was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and underwent months of grueling treatment. Now cancer-free, Traver, along with Rubblebucket, is back to doing what they all do best: rocking dance floors. The Brooklyn-based band, which originally formed in Burlington, is currently touring in support of a tremendous new album, Survival Sounds. The record was directly inspired by Traver’s illness and recovery, and is as emotionally potent as it is artistically bold and gleefully danceable. Rubblebucket play a two-night homecoming run at the Higher Ground Ballroom this week: Thursday, November 6, with Royal Canoe and local glitter popsters And the Kids; and Friday, November 7, also with Royal Canoe, and local openers Swale.
