But, right after that they fell away with a series of songs that weren't half as well rehearsed. Also, the dwindling crowd was really dwindling..

On March 3rd, the International Women's Day, they performed in the Yuyintang during a Women's Day party organized by 0093 Studios. According to Andy Best: Dian's sound could have been a bit louder but it was a welcome return and an energetic performance. The highlight was definitely singer Melody Li. She now has a greater confidence and personality on stage which in turn has opened up her voice. The crowd really liked her. They got an encore for which the band switched instruments and YKE performed his filthy bonus track Ding Ding Dong. On June 5th, they performed at the Indietop show cast event at the Dream Factory in Shanghai. According to Andy Best: Candy Shop took the stage to a sparse looking hall, but that never stops them giving 100%. They launched into the first song but were bemused to find the sound so out that half the elements couldn't be heard at all, to us or the band. The second song was all about the sound guys waking up and trying to sort it out and then by the third it was on with the show. The bands front people are excellent. Melody Li, apparently trying to appeal to the Soma male management with her own weight loss, and MC YKE are full of energy and charisma. Standout songs 4TT, Wo Men and Wo Shi Chaoliu had most of the remaining crowd jumping and excited for the first time that night. August 28th, they performed at the Michael Jackson Tribute Night at the Yu Yin Tang, Shanghai. According to Jake Newby: The highlight came when the crowd demanded an encore and, after a little debate and some goading from the audience, went with their classic closer Ding Ding Dong - the one where they all switch up instruments, still play them incredibly well and produce a hilariously crude song to the tune of Jingle Bells. November 13th, they performed at the Yuyintang. According to Andy Best: Candy Shop have come on miles and miles. They have a full set of good material and an energetic show. For whatever reason, they really appeal to the local crowd and from the get go people were up for the show. After a bit of teething with the sound in the opening track, they ripped into their set and the audience went for it. The band were well prepared for the night with bagdes and stickers to give out as well as a couple of signed posters. They really gave the student crowd a taste of an energetic gig with jumping and dancing and I'm sure they won many new fans.
In January, 2010, Candy Shop an initiative for PETA and took promotional photos for them. On March 12th, 2010, they performed during the Local King 3 in the MAO Live House Shanghai. According to Andy Best: Candy Shop came on with their usual energy and were well received. Unfortunately, their set was broken up. They had to run an on stage promotion for the drink you see in the flyer there. Basically, couples had to get on stage and play charades to win free drinks. (...) They made a good come back with their track 'Wo Men'. On April 30th, they performed during the Shanghai Rock Revitalization concert at the Yuyintang. According to Andy Best: Candy Shop went on first and played the best set of the night. The sound was great, the energy high and everyone appeared to know the songs and be genuine fans of the band.
