    The outdoor music festival season still has some life left in it this year in the form of Lakeview's first-ever "Clark/Belmont Music Fest" on Saturday.

    The concerts feature eight bands (three local) competing in The Next American Star contest, and reaches a glorious crescendo at 9:30 p.m. with a performance by Robert Van Winkle -- better known as Vanilla Ice.

    The Ice Man will surely perform some of his old chart-toppers -- or his one chart-topper -- and may include some choice cuts from last year's release, Vanilla Ice Is Back! Don't front, you know you got that.

    Aside from the closing performance, the festival includes hair and makeup "rock star" makeovers courtesy of Pete Wentz's Clandestine Industries and food and art vendors.

    The fun is scheduled from 12:30 to 9:30 p.m., and tickets are $5 before 5 and $7 afterward.

    Play that funky music.
