cutsleeve is a queer East Asian rock band based in what is currently known as ‘Toronto, Canada’.

Their music explores mental health, queerness, misogyny, and diaspora. Their goal as a band is to provide support and validation to others who share similar experiences.

cutsleeve’s start began at the Invisible Footprints art exhibit, which documents LGBTQ+ Asian histories in ‘Toronto’.




Toronto Live Off The Floor! is a live performance series presented by CJRU 1280AM.

Between now and September 2020, we’ll be featuring a live streamed performance every other Wednesday afternoon, along with an in-depth live streamed interview every other Monday afternoon, done with different emerging music artists based in Toronto and the surrounding area.

The purpose of this series is to connect our audience with local artists of different genres and styles – who come from and identify with different communities that help make Toronto the city that it is, most especially within its music scene. Within that, this series also aims to place an emphasis on musicians who are students at Ryerson University.

This series is funded and made possible by the Community Radio Fund of Canada.
